Floppy disk It Came From The Desert Remake

Hello friends of EAB, I hope you don’t mind me doing a bit of promotion of the remake I've been working on for a while and I have been sharing on social media during the last week.

You can watch the first teaser trailer here: [ Show youtube player ]

It Came From The Desert Remake is my attempt of updating this Cinemaware masterpiece to modern visuals and mechanics.

I have just released the first devlog on my blog where you can read and see a bit more about the process behind the scenes.

Hope you like it and decide to follow the development on Twitter, Youtube or Blogger

Cheers!

Certainly a monumental task, but it's alwas great to see more people working on remakes of classic games.

Ofcourse, you have permission from Cinemaware for doing this ?!

As far as I know, the current copyright owner of all Cinemaware IPs is Starbreeze AB, and no, I don't have their permission nor prohibition.

Just hoping they are OK with it since it's a non-profit-making project.

it's like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Remake. After they worked so long for this game, non-profit project, LucasArts (now Disney) don't give their permission to share this game.
Now they can only share demo of this project..but i think they continue to work to this great game.

Of course you have to go on with your project.
