    Well yeah man, but I'd much rather they made a new game than remake the old ones. Let fans do the HD Graphics.

    LOK definitely has my vote for a new game. CD should definitely make a new LOK game after TR:O.

    just played teh demo, DAMN! nostalgia, running at high FPS at ultra quality, the FPS mode can bog down performance though, and at max it almost consumed a gigabyte of vram o_0

    my only venture into the LoK world and one of my fave games.

    (I read that SR2 wasn't as good, so I never tried it.)

    Brilliant story and all that, but wouldn't be interested in gfx any less than this, so I can't really say that I'd be interested in Blood Omen or Blood Omnicide tbh.

    Hmm, but Blood Omnicide looks great dude, I don't know why you wouldn't be that interested.

    SR2 is more about story vs the gameplay of SR1 imo. As for Blood Omnicide, i noticed that cranking it up to the very max setting yields a ~950MB of vram consumption 0_o.

    Hmm, I didn't check out VRAM Consumption, but I do run it at max. It looks beautiful though for a game from 1996. :p

    Another video, showcasing some progress. This is nuts, they are doing a total 3D remake of a 60-80 hour game, when it was originally 2D...the amount of work put into it is surely rediculous...to not get paid for this...unbelievable.

    Showcasing one of the lakes being remade. Really stunning taking a 2D game and redoing a 60-80 hour RPG.

    I just picked up a big box copy on ebay, so I'm ready to go when this gets released. I never played the game back in the day, but I loves me some old school game play. Of course I don't have a problem with the graphics much as they are, so if this ends up dying out, I'll just enjoy the low resness.

    Yeah, it's a fun game by itself.

    I get mods, and some remakes, you know, like Black Mesa, that's an 8 hour game...

    This is a 2D RPG being made in full 3D...with 60-80 hours of content, and a very large world, that's so much work and they can't sell it...the company should pick them up and sell it for 9.99$, it'd sell for sure.

    A project like this could probably do very well on XBLA as well PC.

    Been away awhile, but plenty of updates have happened and they are damned impressive for a fan made remake of a 2D game:

    Really excited about this.

    I never played this 100%. Only the first couple of hours since I've always had some trouble with old non 3d rpgs :p (needless to say Daggerfall turned me into an RPG'er) Btw i know this is not exactly an rpg :p

    Shame they are now working on yet another Tomb Raider game/ I'd rather see them do stuff like this.
