What old PC game do you want Kickstarted from the grave?

Not the same as actually holding those awesome books, but still good for a trip down memory lane. GUE Tech

Oh how I miss Microprose and their games:

Master of Orion
Master of Orion 2
Master of Magic

...and Bullfrog's

Syndicate

An update or reboot to any of these with graphics, or whatnot would be beyond awesome!

I wish we could kickstart Microprose in general...

Speaking of Jordan Mechner, The Last Express would be another fun one to see updated.

I'm excited that this one's being released on the iPad soon so I can finally play it. I would have gotten to it sooner if I'd known he did it!

Thanks for the link! The first computer game I ever owned was Hitchhker's Guide to the Galaxy, and over the years, I played (but certainly didn't finish) almost all of the Infocom catalog. The site brings back many memories.

This with better graphics and more races please. I really enjoyed it when it came out but looking back at it, it hasn't aged well at all.

Oh hey, I remember that! I think there was always the intention to add Eldar and Tyranids to it but they never did. The AI would occasionally use units that you had no access to as well, I was really confused when they busted out Knights (sort of like mini-Titans) and I'd never seen them in game before. Very strange game, but good!

Still highly playable, just grab the hi res, lighting, and texture mods.

Oh? Where might one find these mods of which you speak?

And an updated I76? That'd be pimpin.

Seven Cities of Gold
Racing Destruction Set

Arcanum and Vampire: Bloodlines. RIP, Troika

Hell and yes! That was an amazing game. This is just a knee jerk statement, but how many recent games out there have actually done a Steampunk theme?

Not too many. Isn't CD Projekt's next game supposed to be steampunk though ?

Cyberpunk.

Revolution Software is Kickstarting a new entry in the Broken Sword series.

One of the better pitch videos I've seen, they only want $400K and you get a digital copy of the game even with the lowest tier. Very cool.

I still need to get around to playing Broken Sword. I bought it from GoG but haven't started yet

Well besides a reboot... I would also like some of the original minds to help make it so... some of the later games got away from the feel of the first few games.

I think it's about time for a world like Kingdom's of Amalur... but set in the times when the Flatheads ruled!
