This sentence made me laugh:

Well that won't take much beating, coming from a company that has recycled it's Worms code and graphics for about the last 14 years!

Will be interesting to see how it turns out though.

I guess it will be some 'licensed 3D engine' game The chance that they make a new top-down shooter is not very big. Well we'll see in the next news...

yes sure DD

from http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/09...-alien-breed/1
Quote:
Team17 is leaving Worms alone for a little bit in order to focus on remaking the Alien Breed game.

Team17 is stepping away from the Worms franchise for a little bit and will be remaking the original Alien Breed game and all we can say is thank you! Don't get us wrong, we love Worms, but the series has become a little bit repetitive and formulaic over the last few years.

Team17 gave the announcement last night that it would be remaking Alien Breed, which was a top-down sci-fi shooter made for the single greatest computer system ever, the Amiga.

Not much is know about the game, which has no relation to the Aliens series, just yet and we aren't too sure on whether it'll be an all-out remake or an utterly fresh sequel.

Currently, the rumour is that Team17 is looking to maximise revenue on the game and that it will be a self-published, downloadable affair, so although platforms haven't yet been confirmed XBLA, PSN and PC all seem like viable choices, though WiiWare could also be on the cards.

Or, in other words, it could come to pretty much any platform and we just don't know for sure.

"We're doing it with a budget far in excess of anything that has been spent anywhere on a digital title to date," Team17 reportedly said in a recent statement.
so it will be the real AB not the 3D

For various comedy messages try any of the following:

  "GAMESX"                 "JULIE"                 "ALISON"
  "MARTIN"                 "MARTYN"                "ALLISTER"

  "ELAINE"                 "TUG"                   "MC HAMMER"
  "XR5I"                   "GARDEN FIEND"          "HOOVER"
  "MICROBYTE"              "THE COMPUTER STORE"    "VIRGIN"
  "GALLUP"                 "MAN UTD"               "FRAZZE"
  "JOGGAN"                 "KOKKOSLAVEN"           "GIRLS DOWNTOWN"
  "GENERAL MOTORS"         "SEGA"                  "ME ANDREAS"
  "LINDA"                  "KYSINGER"              "DEPECHE"
  "ANTIACTION"             "LZ"                    "JONATHAN FORBES"
  "LITH"                   "STEFFAN"               "ANDREAS"
  "PETER"                  "CHEAT"                 "LYSATOR"
  "BOBERG"                 "HALLA"                 "STAFFAN"
  "KTH"                    "RON"                   "C19"
  "BERING"                 "ULRIKA"                "TEQUILA"
  "FULL CONTACT"           "LEEDS"                 "SPADGE"
  "LIVERPOOL"              "NEWCASTLE BROWN"       "NCE"

When you enter the last letter of the desired word you should hear a
crunch sound.  If you don't hear the sound press 'RETURN' and then
enter the word or phrase again.  The reason you should press 'RETURN'
is none of the cheats have return in them, so the pointer will restart
at the beginning.

it is possible they will go for such an engine for that, but, my humble opinion being that this newish 3d system has seen many iterations already, an approach more alike the original one, even completely in bitmap graphics, wouldn't hurt.

AB3D is one of my favourite games ever and I wouldn't mind seeing an Aliens-esque FPS (roll on Colonial Marines!), but I suspect T17 won't go down the FPS route with this new Breed as producing a AAA quality FPS is probably beyond their budget. I'd guess topdown or maybe isometric.

It could work on platforms like XBLA and WiiWare, but on any other platform going the retro way will only hurt sales. People only want 3D nowadays. I have even seen numerous people whine that their eyes hurt when they have to stare at a game based on the Quake 3 engine :s (meaning the gfx are too outdated and the game is no fun anymore)

i understand that point: in this run for technology, old is not interesting (of course i'm generalizing as any other aspect was not important now): if you want 3D do great entincing newest 3D possible.

else go for the ancient. plain old it is simply too recent

Ahh, great game.

The way to go if not brave enough to do a 'proper' top-down shooter.

New Alien Breed game (Wot? No Brimble?)

Team17 has confirmed that an Alien Breed remake will release next year. We have heard rumours that Team17 may not be using Allister Brimble for the audio. It would be crime not to have Allister Brimble as the musician, who as the composer of the original Alien Breed game, is responsible the incredible atmosphere of the earlier title which led to much of its appeal. If you think this is wrong, please email Team17 and help their new title get the quality it deserves. http://www.team17.com/contact.html
