Midwinter Remake Plans

An HD remake of Midwinter is in the works for PCs and consoles, reports Eurogamer, saying a Kickstarter is coming early this year with the game's release expected early next. The original Midwinter is a post-apocalyptic first-person action/RPG designed by the late Mike Singleton for Atari ST, Amiga, and PC in 1989. This is in the works at Chilli Hugger Software, who previously remade Singleton's The Lords of Midnight on iOS. They disclose that the creative lead on the project is Dan Whitehead, one of their contributors who over time penned a retrospective on the game and an obit for Mike Singleton. "Midwinter was a seminal game, and a huge influence on the open world sandbox genre, but Mike's vision was held back by the technology of the time," Whitehead tells them. "Our aim is to bring Midwinter back into the modern gaming environment, combining the depth and variety of the original with today's cutting edge visuals and processing power. The goal is not to merely remake the game, but to fully realise Mike's ambitious design without the limitations of 16-bit hardware."
