A Kickstarter teaser trailer dug up (or possibly ‘sent to’) RockPaperShotgun heavily implies that a Syndicate Wars remake/reboot/reimagining will go under the crowdfunding gaze next month.
There’s not a great deal in the video, but the clues are as follows: 1996, a Bullfrog release and a ‘gloomy city at night’ vibe. Since that doesn’t sound like Genewars, that leaves Mike Diskett and Syndicate Wars (follow-up to the original Syndicate) as the likely candidates. I’d have to take issue with Syndicate Wars being described as a “masterpiece” though. Sorry, game.
It was pretty damn good though, and a rebootimagining (I just made that term up) would provide ample opportunity to iron out the mistakes of the original game. By the looks of it, it’ll be called Satellite Reign.
Here’s the teaser, and the countdown website.
