System Shock, the 1994 shooter/role playing game published by Origin, is getting a remake. Night Dive Studios, best known for acquiring licenses to DOS classics and updating them for modern systems has initiated a crowdfunding campaign to secure the necessary funds. This studio is also credited with last year's enhanced edition of the original System Shock, which increases the screen resolution and fixes several gameplay and usability issues. The original voice artist for SHODAN is set to record new voiceover materials. An early gameplay trailer and pre-alpha demo are already available. With just about a week to go, the project has exceeded its Kickstarter goal and has the green light to proceed!
Did you know that the CD-ROM edition of System Shock features a hidden Wing Commander mini-game?
Even crazier bit of history: System Shock originally started life as a pitch for a Wing Commander tie-in called Alien Commander!
