Mid-Nineties PC gamers are bound to remember System Shock with some fondness – it was a groundbreaking game that scored highly with the press and innovated in key areas, and you can see its legacy woven into the fabric of modern first-person shooters today. Well, there’s good news: it’s coming back and with a brand new look for the modern era.
Night Dive Studios is looking to raise $900,000 in order to get the project completed. System Shock is initially targeting the PC and Xbox One, with Mac and Linux versions as a stretch goal at $1.1 million and other platforms to be considered in the future. Further stretch goals include a fully orchestrated soundtrack, new locations and French, Italian, German and Spanish translations.
