Flashback remake "was important to do right" | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes:We caught up with Simon Mackenzie, writer on the Flashback remake project, during E3 to discuss how he and the team approached developing the game.

"I love Flashback. I gush about it." He enthused. "It was that game, for me, that got me into gaming. It was such an important thing to do and make right...I talked to Paul Cuisset, the original producer, and producer of the new version, and we talked about his influences, what made him make [it] in the first place. We did modernise it for a modern audience, but we also looked back at those great movies that inspired it - from Blade Runner, Total Recall - all those elements. If you're a fan of the genre, we put in some neat little easter eggs in there for you." (Flashback, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well they got it instantly wrong out the gate. A game that looked incredible on the Mega Drive and pushed boundaries at the time with its unique use of technologies and what do they do? Release it on the most generic, over used engine of the generation making it look like so many other games out there. What a complete and utter waste.

As a HUGE fan of Flashback when it came out... I'm going to wait and hold any judgement until I get to play it. The original certainly had a unique look about it, and I'm a bit sad that they didn't somehow incorporate that into this new version... Yet, I know not to judge a book by its cover. We've only been shown a brief trailer. Give it time, and wait until you actually try it before knocking it. :]

i have to say the animation in that demo looked a bit ropey, even compared to the original flashback. also i hope they release it on ps vita.
