New System Shock Demo

As part of the Steam Next Fest mentioned below, Nightdive Studios is offering a new playable demo on Steam for System Shock, the upcoming remake of the classic action/RPG. Word is: "Join us during the Steam Next Fest, where you will experience the power of true artificial intelligence as you play the latest version of System Shock. But be warned, players: the game you are about to play at Steam Next Fest is just a glimpse into the world we’ve created for you." It's been a few decades, so here's a refresher so no one finds this a shock to their system:
System Shock is the fully fledged remake of the ground breaking original from 1994, combining cult gameplay with all-new HD visuals, updated controls, an overhauled interface and all-new sounds & music; it even has the original voice actor of SHODAN, one of gaming’s most iconic villains. Witness the rebirth of one of the greatest and most influential games ever created.

Uh wow, it's actually quite good. They basically updated everything and went retro with some of the textures, the visual blend works really well. Loving this so far and it wasn't even on my radar before. Highly recommend people download the demo and check it out.

Yep! I will definitely buy this game when it ships. I didn't know what to expect, but I found the graphics very good and pretty much up-to-date. The very short intro was pretty bland, but once onboard the Shodan station I had a difficult time putting it down last night! Light years better than the original, imo, which I owned. Play is very nice. Recommended. Very little "retro" here that I've seen so far. Interface is cool, fun, and easy. Mapping is good, etc.

Demo has a couple of minor bugs--binding custom keys apparently has to be redone at each play, but other options, like 3840x2160P, stick between plays. Sound is really good. And--the save game (save on demand) feature works very well, too! Nice for a playable demo.
It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)
