now I'm really afraid...

Recommended Posts

Otherside Entertainment has Paul Neurath, so I'm not sure what you're afraid of.

 

It isn't a Kickstarter yet. They may choose to Kickstart each game or might not, but they have to release Underworld by November 2016 so that takes priority. This could be a teaser for a Kickstarter they launch in 2017.

Nice. :) First time i hear about this. A System Shock with modern gameplay (not in the bad sense), and modern technology, better graphics and stuff could be really great. And the right people seem to be involved too.

Otherside is made up of some ex-LGS folks. They're the right studio for this. 'Looking Glass' 'Otherside' of the Looking Glass. ;)

Exactly.


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

The best thing about System Shock was the intro in the first game.

I wasn't terribly impressed. Playing SS2 in 2015 didn't change too much for me. If anything I sympathized more with Bioshock because of the nice 40's, 50's soundtrack, although it blatantly copy/pasted some mechanics - but who cares I play it like Quake anyway.

 

If SS3 is going to be like Dead Space with the old mechanics... well more choice in sci-fi games I guess.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Talking of intro, i always get goosebumps when i watch the intro to System Shock II. It's pretty awesome, of course the Brosius soundtrack plays a big part in that. I must admit i never played it through though. I played it through like halfways, then got a bit pissed off because the monsters respawned in areas i already had cleansed. Something which i hated about Bioshock too... i mean it's cool in moderation, but i hate it when it's too much.

aw YAS ! I want to believe in the project but I'd first like to see more of Underworld Ascent before getting overly enthusiastic about it.
By the way, I saw on their facebook page that a folk asked the studio to do another Thief game. I quote their response : "I think that franchise is out of reach. But I'd love to revisit stealth at some point -Chris".
