Gauntlet Remake This Summer

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment they've picked up the gauntlet, as they plan on offering an updated version of Gauntlet for Windows this summer through Valve's Steam service, saying this will fully support SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines. This is in development at Arrowhead Studios (Magicka), and they say it "innovates on past titles while staying true to the brandís legendary format." WBIE also has more retro remakes in the works, as they say: "The game will lead the launch of WB Games Vault, a direct-to-digital portfolio that will deliver paid games based on popular Warner Bros. and Midway brands, plus original IP, across multiple digital networks." The Gauntlet website is already online, featuring newsletter signups, and an official announcement trailer which includes gameplay footage and an outline of the game's classes. Here's part of the announcement:

Upon selecting a playable character, the gameplay is set within dungeons where the object is to fight through the chambers slaying evil creatures and completing challenges. An assortment of special items can be located in each dungeon that can restore the playerís health, unlock doors, and shift the odds in the playerís favor with magical relics which can aid the player in surviving longer in the Gauntlet. The enemies are a vast assortment of fantasy-based monsters, including ghosts, grunts, demons, spiders, sorcerers and skeleton warriors.

Cool, remember it being my favorite game i had on the old Apple IIGS

Yeah Gauntlet was pretty badass at the time, not sure how it will hold up though.

When I was a kid, and this was in the arcade. Oh man! The game, actually TALKED!!!! ***Mind blown*** So decades later I'm messing around with MAME and, "acquired" a few old arcade classic ROMS. I fired this one up, nostalgically thinking, "my kids are gonna LOVE this!" Man, did my childhood memory ever build this one up. It's still a fun little co-op hack and slash in it's own way. But, technology definitely wasn't as advanced as I thought it was in 1985.

I remember encountering a Sinistar machine for the first time as a kid, and it scaring the fuck out of me.

I never saw and played it. I played in MAME several years ago. Wow, hard and scary!
