System Shock remake meets Kickstarter funding goal0 Comments
System Shock fans are have a lot to be happy about these days, as the Kickstarter project for the remaster of 1994's iconic FPS/RPG hybrid title System Shock has successfully cleared its funding goal. The game, which is being developed by System Shock 3 developer Night Dive Studios, passed over its $900,000 funding goal just two days ago.
Now that the game's initial funding threshold has been breached, several stretch goals are in sight. With $1.2 million, the team plan to include multi-language support as well as Mac and Linux versions of the title. If backers push funding toward $1.5 million, Night Dive plan to record the game's score with the help of a full orchestra. There's a chance that those numbers can be reached, too, as the project is only about $26,000 shy of reaching the $1 million mark with 16 days remaining.
Funding of the project was no doubt bolstered by the game's pre-alpha "proof of concept" demo, which gave good indication of the atmospheric and tense designs that Night Dive has in vision for the title. Anyone interested in checking out the demo can do so without backing the project — Steam, GOG, and Humble can all provide free access. For everyone else, including backers, the System Shock remake has an estimated delivery date of December 2017.
