Titled “Shadow Moses,” the HD remake will use the Unreal 4 engine and is currently in the early production stages. A trailer was posted showing off their efforts yesterday.
Note this is a remake being created outside of Konami, spearheaded by the group of fans. The developer’s Facebook page stated this today:
We just need to clarify something:
Konami owns the MGS copyright and therefore sooner or later
we will need their full permission.
We have therefore chosen to openly share this project from the beginning so that we can deal with any issues that may arise as they come.
We believe this is better than putting years of work into a project only
to get it shut down.
Like most fan created projects using properties owned by major corporations in the video game industry, this will probably not see a full production or be legally released.
Why would you want an old tube television? For the best retrogaming experience of course! If you still have one, you’re probably used to playing your old games and consoles on it already. But, if you want to recreate the magic of that era, this one article will most certainly help you while showing some of the many differences between HD displays and the SD displays of yesterday.
Pier Solar might not be well known to the general public but it deserves plenty of attention because it harkens back to the “golden years’ of RPGs, something I think all gamers can come to appreciate. Pier Solar and the Great Architects is a homebrew game for the Sega Genesis and with your help, it can get a major HD release onto other consoles! If an old-school, 16-bit RPG interests you even the slightest bit, donate to the developer WaterMelon and help them reach their goal!
