Flashback HD Remake Planned?

Gameblog.fr has a French-language report saying an HD remake of classic platformer Flashback is in the works. The unconfirmed report has a screenshot and notes that this document shows that the CNC has earmarked 300,000 to a company called Vector Cell for a project called Flashback Origins. Thanks VG247.

Yes please. I loved crusader no regret/no remorse games.

Ah yes, that was a special time in my life. My Crusader memory links with Nomad Soul somehow. I guess I played those games in the same period.
I remember those games. I couldn't get into them though.

very hard game. Cheated heavily to complete it. Opening sequence was one of my favourites from that era.

It's too bad the art style is so much more modern, but as long as it has a fair price and is true to the original, I would gladly buy this.

Meanwhile, this moves us one step closer to a Fade to Black remake.

Waiting on remakes of Crusader or the LBA games,
Ray Yeah, yeah, LBA is a hard sell in today's market.

FLASHBACK! Nostalgia incarnate!

Come with those HD remakes please! Commander Keen too, and most definitely Another World!

With HD remakes being the new Zombies/WW2 thing, come on and do Outcast HD.

Oh cool, fond memories of all those games, except Fade to Black, that was in very clunky 3d right? Voxel graphics too if I remember correctly. Still those frenchies sure had something in those IPs.

Flashback had some of the best graphics for its time. The vivid jungle atmosphere still comes to mind after all these years. I never spent too much time on it because I was PC/Amigalesl at the time, and only had opportunities to play it at a friends house....

Will definitely check this out if only for nostalgia's sake...

The screenshot does look kinda nice but I don't know... I think I still prefer the old graphics. Though I would have to see the remake in motion before being able to make a better comparison.

I loved this game but sadly never finished it. Screen shot looks great by the way.

Anybody play the sequel, Fade to black?

One of my favorite games ever. Don't see the need for a remake with "HD" graphics that end up looking worse, though. I can just boot up the original in Dosbox...

If it's in DOS, it's not the original.

The HD remake of Out of this World didn't really improve the game. On the other hand it gave me an excuse to play through it again. That's not a bad thing.
