System Shock Remake Playable From Start to Finish; Devs Report Progress
The long-awaited remake of System Shock is getting closer. The developers have announced that the title is playable from start to finish. Currently, the studio is polishing the game.
Nightdive, the studio responsible for the remake of System Shock from 1994 has posted a new update on Kickstarter. It informs about the current progress of work on the game.
The developers have announced that the title is now playable from beginning to end. Currently, work is focused on fine-tuning levels, graphics, animations and general polishing of the game. This throws a positive outlook on the long-awaited project, which has a rich history - just to mention that it appeared on Kickstarter back in 2016.
"At the time of writing, it’s in a position where the game can essentially be finished from beginning to end! What we are currently focusing on is polishing up the levels, and incorporating additional art, animations, and creating a ton of secondary assets that were once far lower in priority."
The developers have also released a few pictures, which give a good idea of the final and still prepared gadgets, including an amazing looking steel case.
Steel Case is beautiful and will definitely be a treat for collectors.
The inside of the steel case is also pretty cool and has been designed to look like a cyborg's eye socket and the disc itself like a lens implant. The idea behind the whole graphic design is that when you remove the game disc, you pull out the implant, leaving the cable it was attached to hanging. It looks really great and will definitely appeal to fans of physical game releases.
TriOptim's employee handbook and Mantis Assassin figurine were also presented
Preorders and demos of the game are available on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store.
