    I've ran through the demo twice now. Once this morning, once now.

    Looks great, and as a proof of concept... is amazing. More companies should start Kickstarters like this. With something solid to show.

    Looks super promising so far and a playable demo is a massive plus but I'm so done with early access/ kick starters

    I've backed so much **** and NONE of them have released on time or even close to what they promised ;_;

    I've only ever supported one Early Access game. And that was Betrayer.
    And I only did that because of the huge respect I have for Craig Hubbard and the guys at Monolith.
    And they did not disappoint. Betrayer is awesome.

    I have not backed a single kickstarter.
    Mostly because... there haven't been any I ever through were worthwhile. And, my train of thought has always been "I could just wait for release, see how it is... and get it then."
    I mean, look at Mighty No. 9... that sure turned out "well". ;)


    But, Nightdive are doing this right IMO.
    Buying the IP. Re-releasing the original System Shock 1 and 2. Working with another studio to make SS3.
    And developing this remake internally. And, putting out a fully playable demo for people to experience before backing.
    So they can not only see, but play for themselves what the goal is.

    I've backed Divinity Original Sin and Wasteland 2, later on also Pillars of Eternity and Torment and so far that's turning out OK although Divinity and Wasteland 2 took a while (And a re-release.) to get everything in order and Pillars have also required a number of patches but it's not too bad now, Torment is also shaping up nicely from what little I've tested of the various released beta builds.

    Was interested in Shroud of the Avatar but I'm almost glad I missed that Kickstarter as the game is not turning out as I had expected, also missed Bards Tale and the Underworld reboot but it's too early to say how those will turn out though Underworld isn't quite as I had expected from what little have been shown so far.

    Also missed Bloodstained unfortunately and that seems to be turning out OK but I was low on money so had to give it a miss but I'll definitively pick it up once it's released.

    Oh and yeah Kingdom Come, Cry-Engine is causing the team a bit of headache it seems and there's been a few delays but the beta is slowly shaping up though it's still somewhat clunky, could go whichever way so I hope the development team can get the game into shape for it's now-2017 release.

    Picked up Elite and Star-Citizen during their alpha/beta releases and well Elite is well it's Elite mostly and Star-Citizen is garnering a lot of attention plus some 110 million or so in funding by now but progress is slow although it might see completion one day.


    As for this I'll likely pick it up when it's released in full, System Shock 1 wasn't too bad but I personally preferred the sequel though I am sure this remake will be very faithful to the original and it seems they had (Or someone had.) plans for a System Shock 2 remaster as well and a actual sequel, but that's not for a while yet.

    So it'll be fun to explore Citadel Station again once this gets released even if I personally preferred the sequel. :)


    EDIT: I don't generally back with that much money though, usually it's the tier to get a copy of the game when it's finished and sometimes depending on how interested I am in the project I might gradually increase the funding level for other bonuses although it's still a pretty small sum, highest I think was a 100$ or so for Torment since I had money to spare at that occasion. :p

    Played the demo. Loved it.

    Performance isnt too hot on a single gtx 580 but thats not the games fault, though hopefully the fullgame will ship with a bunch of optimizations to help with saving me from having to upgrade just a little longer.

    Il wait closer to release to back this. Im not fond of backing games, but this could be an exception.


    Off to play SS2 now with some mods

    Has anyone gotten downsampling to work? It doesn't go above 1080P even though I select 4K in the menu.

    Yeah, has been out for about a week. I think... there's one week left. It was only going to be available for a limited time.

    Tried the demo, didn't finish it.

    Not my type of game i guess, don't like all the bright colors.
