Nightdive Studios and remasters


Katphood

Recommended Posts

You probably know of these guys, they remastered games such as Turok, System Shock, Shadowman, Strife, I Have No Mouth and I must Scream...

 

Are there any games you would like to see them remaster and what do think of what they have done so far with old games and remasters.

 

These are the games I would love to see on steam someday, remastered by none other than Nightdive Studios:

 

Nocturne
The Blair Witch Trilogy
O.D.T
Dark Earth
Time Commando
Fatal Racing
Incubation(Battle Isle)
Kiss: Psycho Circus
Alien Trilogy

No One Lives Forever

This, plus the second game.

 

Also, Return to Castle Wolfenstein.  That game was so good.

Yeah, I don't know the details, but I've heard rumblings that NOLF is stuck in some kind of IP trademark hell.  It's a shame because it's a couple of amazing games that really should be made available for a new generation of players to enjoy.

It was strongly implied that ND couldn't get anyone to even check that they owned the NOLF rights. So they went for the trademark (which is pretty cheap to apply for) to see who if anyone would block them. IIRC it was Warners, and they were sufficiently unhappy about that approach that there's no chance of ND getting the rights- and odd as it may seem something like System Shock being successfully relaunched makes it less likely that the rights would be sold outright, at least. There have been rumours of GOG working on NOLF compatibility but I'd be sceptical of that until there's better evidence that isn't basically wishful thinking.

So WB are basically just sitting on the IP, holding it hostage, doing nothing with it, not letting anyone negotiate a deal to use it, out of...  spite?  I mean, that does sound like something they would do.

Clive Barkers Undying, the original Rayman, Spider (it was a ps1 exclusive, a remaster would be nice on pc), Gex series.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

That's not necessarily the case- all we know is WB challenged the trademark filing at the USPTO and ND withdrew it. The potential problems with the developer and publisher being bought by different entities (Monolith--> WB; Fox--> Vivendi--> Activision) and the IP maybe being split and hence difficult to re-release as a consequence still exists, all that is now known is that WB claims part of it. They still may or may not own all of it, and may or may not be willing to license to someone.

 

To be fair to Warners they're a massive company, if some no name was asking for information on an obscure and not particularly successful game from the early 2000s not treating it seriously is understandable; as is getting annoyed when they decide to fish for a response. The group that Night Dive dealt with over System Shock was a bank/ insurer (Meadowbrook Bank/ Star Insurance) used to selling off seized collateral by the nature of their business.
