System Shock Reboot Has Started Its Kickstarter Campaign

Nightdive Studios has kept its promise for System Shock’s official Kickstarter campaign in order to raise money for creating a reboot of the well-known sci-fi RPG franchise.

The developers have also launched a small Windows demo of System Shock’s reboot project, which will be released in 2017 for the PC and Xbox One.

The campaign is targeting at least $900,000 in the next 30 days to fund the revival of the original game that was released by Looking Glass way back in 1994.

You can also have a look at the game’s main features.

  • A modern take on System Shock, a faithful reboot; it’s not Citadel Station as it was, but as you remember it. Many improvements, overhauls and changes are being implemented to capture the spirit of what the original game was trying to convey, and bring it to contemporary gamers.

  • Re-imagined enemies, weapons, and locations by original concept artist Robb Waters.

  • Terri Brosius reprises her role as SHODAN, and new VO will be recorded.

  • Brand new musical score composed by Jonathan Peros.

  • The user interface, game mechanics, enemies, and puzzles will be updated to reflect modern aesthetics and sensibilities, while maintaining the feel of the original.
