They also didn't release screenshots or a gameplay video to illustrate the changes which is really retarded so they kind of made up in stupidity for no BR and no MTX.

There is always something...

I suppose no screenshots because it basically looks the same. The only differences are that it doesn't run like ass anymore if you play it at anything above 1024x768 since it no longer relies on dosbox, the menus are fancier with a new range of options, and the face portraits for the emails were redone. It's the new, best option to play the game if anyone hasn't yet.

Played through the first three floors and it feels great, though now with the modernized control options, it feels waaay too easy.
