New Blade Runner Game

Since the rights to BR spin-offs has been obtained, it was mentioned that there is interest in BR on "multiple platforms". GAME comes first to mind.
And, as an avid gamer, that makes me salivate! =P~

Re: New Blade Runner Game

I think that Epic Games new game "Samaritan" could be a nice little homage to Blade Runner, not as much as Snatcher was.

Which also reminds me supposedly Hideo Kojima is working on a follow up to Snatcher.

I wonder if a new BR Game would be an action adventure title, like Resident Evil 4 or something. I don't know the plausibility of doing another point and click unless it was on the iPad. Even then, there'll always be the feeling that "it was done better before".

Me, I'd rather Westwood re-released it updating the character models for the iPad and iPhone (as well as PC/Console downloads etc)!

Yup, no reason to try and re-make the BR game with something like point and click.That game is a classic.Was awesome.A new BR game needs a fresh approach.Now we have HD 3-D gaming.The possibilities are exciting.
"Deus-Ex: Human Revolution" is even being advertised as being heavily influenced by BR. I'm looking forward to it. "Heavy Rain" (The Origami Killer) was very cool. And, I see the influence in the look of the "Samaritan" video. It's almost like the industry is biding their time and gearing-up for a BR game release. Testing new ideas until they're ready for an actual "Blade Runner"... Which is, of course, what I really want.

I wish it could be re-released for current operating systems, as well. I miss the hell outta that game.
BTW, Westwood has been out-of-business for several years.

Re: New Blade Runner Game

Ah yes, slip of the tongue. I meant EA or whoever owns the rights now.

In this screenshot

it's nice to see the actual full resolutions of the character models!

Incidentally, if you have a Mac and an original copy of the game, you can install and run it through WineSkin and it runs perfectly.
The wrapper for this game has been uploaded here

Note the wrapper is NOT THE ACTUAL GAME (and I personally would hunt down anyone who pirated it!) but a small program that you can install BR into and run it without the need for Parallels and the like.

Re: New Blade Runner Game

I'm playing L.A. Noire http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc_Mww4Ra5k&ob=av3e right now, and I just can't stop thinking about how great a Blade Runner game in this vein would be...
