What other classic games would you like to see Kickstarter Revival for?

With Wasteland, Liesure Suit Larry, and Shadowrun seeing new games thanks to Kickstarter, what other classic franchises would you like to see make a comeback?

 

Out of everything, I'd like to see Quest For Glory. Probably my favorite franchise of all time.

Freespace. Then again, maybe not, the uncertainty at the end of FS2 was rather nice.

The Lords of Midnight.

 

...and Doomdarks Revenge! :w00t:

 

Barring that, Master of Orion 2.

 

 

Edit to add: Icemark for the heathens who are ignorant regarding the greatest game ever.

Longest Journey/Dreamfall

 

I don't generally care about franchises, but that's the one plot cliffhanger I am interested in seeing resolved.

I think Space Hulk is the best one I can come up with at the moment.

 

Only if they remake the title song :thumbsup:

Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.

Almost suggested a prequel, in the time of terran vasudan war, but no beam weapons and no shields make DD a dull boy.

 

I'd like a new Syndicate Wars, as an top down tactical shooter, not as an FPS.

My list would just a whole bunch of ex-Origin/Bullfrog/Microprose properties - such as

 

Strike Commander

F-19/117A Stealth Fighter

Privateer

Crusader

System Shock

Syndicate

Populous

Pirates!

Theme Park/Hospital

Dungeon Keeper

Darklands

Transport Tycoon

Covert Action

Master of Orion

Masters of Magic

Machiavelli: The Prince

Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix

Jane's Longbow

 

 

...you get the idea. And a few outside that:

Flashback

Giants: Citizen Kabuto

Betrayal at Krondor

Arx Fatalis

The Last Express

Interstate '76

and some of the non-Core Sim-something games.

Dunno, a while back my answers would've been Baldur's Gate and Deus Ex, but both of those are getting some attention already. I'd cough up for any Infinity Engine game made by the right people (Obsid, ex-Bioware) and probably also for a Warlords game. The first one was always my favourite strategy game.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Loom remake/sequel

Betrayal at Krondor remake/sequel

Full Throttle sequel

Anachronox sequel

DaggerXL

 

Only Betrayal at Krondor at this point is likely to happen after Feist has finished out his latest book. DaggerXL is doable, but the issue is copyright.

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

A real Jagged Alliance game.

Archimedean Dynasty 2 ( yeah, retcon all the aquanox crap :p)

Freespace 3

A Desert/Jungle Strike - like game ( renegade ops had promise, but the failed in the end. Gatling Gears failed even worse with their stupid camera and forced limitations)

Darklands 2

Micro Machines but in top down MM/MM2 style.

Street Rod 3

1.13 killed off Ja2.

Heh, it's a bloody shame that with all our powerful PCs, we can't get a simulator like GS2K/F-19/F-117A or Falcon.
