I was a fan of the original back in the 90's, and somehow never heard about this sequel! Pretty cool to see a classic resurrected. I'll have to check it out (if reviews are good), probably PS5 or Steam that hit today

There was a sequel or reboot or something before this one. It didn't review too well though, so I never checked it out. Also kind of makes me wary of this one. The original was an amazing game back in the day. I always loved the atmosphere and aesthetics it had going for it. One of those truly unique games that just leaves a lasting impression.

Yup, as a big fan of the original, the remake made me sad, it was absolute garbage and I couldn't finish it, a bit like Oddworld new and tasty that a lot of people hated, yet they doubled down with the sequel and got slapped as a result.
Just very weird that we heard nothing about this sequel, but I agree that it doesn't make me very optimistic. I guess we'll see!

Edit: yeah, looking at Steam comments and stuff, it's shit lol

The remake sucked. All the atmosphere of the original was completely vacant from it.

Despite an intriguing set-up, the follow-up to the 1992 classic falters in almost every way, to say nothing of its various bugs.

Ouch. I'd rather them leave our nostalgia alone than half ass it, trample on it. Thanks for the warning.
