I’m new to the forum but I’m a huge fan of the original game back in the days and still the proud owner of an almost flawless boxed copy of the nineties. Having said that, I was highly enthusiast when the pretty shots of homeworld 1 remastered started to build hype around the web. Unfortunately, for me at least, the stellar switch to modern era graphics and assets weren’t enough for the lack of proper gameplay elements (formations, tactics, physic/ballistic) that got lost in translation. Sadly, (and I hate to say this knowing the amount of work that have been put in this remake), no matter how hard I tried to love it, I ended up frustrated and stopped playing it in favor of the original.
But let me just say that today’s news are truely a revelation… a one I never thought was going to happen. It’s been months without news and just when I was about to preload Deserts Of Kharak, I thought myself “maybe I should take a look again” and how happy I am right now seeing these 2 hours ago freshly new released screenshots! Can’t believe such a thing is finally happening
It means a lot to me, and it just shows how you guys truely care about this franchise. Regardless of how much I’m looking forward to playing Deserts Of Kharak, the new game will never have a bigger place in my heart than the original, not only because of nostalgia, but also because of the gameplay, storytelling, deep space and artistic elements and I must say what I’m looking at today is very promising and truely a step in the right direction!!
You guys did an amazing job on the graphics, no doubt it’s a pretty game absolutely stunning to look at. But add those missing elements of the original and it will be a perfect remaster!! The game absolutely need these features, this is a relic masterpiece, a one that wrote a part in the history of videogames, and it truely deserve a proper remake no matter the cost. I really hope Gearbox will continue to support development on it until it matches your expectations as developers and fans of the original.
Keep up the good work guys!!!
