Which Interplay Game Would You Most Like To See Remastered/Rebooted?

Post by DNACowboy » September 18th, 2018, 7:26 am

Here are some from Interplay's library of games:

Personally, right at the very top would be Remastered Baldurs Gate and then a proper new sequel to Shadow Of Amn.

What exactly should be "remastered" in BG? Just add all the fan patches and it's fine, eg. better than this "Enhaced Edition" they're trying to sell.

Yeah, like Sarevok, Irenicus and Amelyssan joining some super-duper cosmic evil and wanting to get the Remembered Realms rid of elves, dwarves and magic-users! And fix those pesky mages so they can only cast 5 spells at a time!

Zin, do the patches included 4K UHD font scaling for example?

Not sure about that, I only played in 1080. But a Barrows Deep remaster supporting 4K and 21:9 would also be nice.

At least with remasters you are assured that the game will be good (if you original was good). A Dragon Wars remake in the same engine/style as the Bard's Tale remakes would be good, if they got the license.

? Barrows Deep already supports that, I immediately tested that when the game launched.

Speaking solely as a gamer (aka, I am NOT hinting at anything inXile is working on), one series I'd love to see come back is Giants: Citizen Kabuto. It's got such a fun and quirky sense of humor, and a very interesting fusion of extremely open-ended level design, strategy, squad management, and base-building elements. Fantastic soundtrack and pretty technically impressive at the time, too. Even today, it remains an extremely refreshing combination of ideas. It's a shame the game never really got the attention or follow-up it deserved.

Fallout 3
Pool of Radiance 2
Pool of Radiance 1; and the rest of the Gold Box Series.... but not as FPS, or Hearthstone clones.

But above all... Die By The Sword.

I wouldn't mind seeing one of the many Morrowind facelifts to actually come to fruition.

I've never understood why such a rich, profitable rpg such as Pools of Radiance hasn't been followed up with another original game or at least been rebooted.

Stormfront released Pool of Radiance 2; and shipped it with an installer bug that could format the C drive when you uninstalled.

Maybe Lionheart - in a complete remastered and extended version. The setting is fresh and the ruleset is working.
If someone can fix the mess that was released, I would buy it.

Also the RPG-archive from the SSI games with better graphics/technic would be a sure buy for me. I loved them all, no matter if Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Dark Sun or even Buck Rogers.

Well, if the remaster is as well done as the Bards Tale 1 - 3 remasters are - remaster all Interplay games. :D

The archives can be had now with better~ish graphics, in that Dosbox can render them with a scaler. Also FRUA has many (many) mods—lots with graphics hacks.

It would be very neat to get some modern remasters of those... I wonder if Krome could establish a name for themselves just [additionally] in official classic DOS remasters?

It's too bad Seven Dragon Saga failed. I would have liked to see what they managed.
