Commercial Dear Esther Plans

A remake of Thechineseroom's Half-Life 2 modification Dear Esther will be released on Steam as a commercial game this summer, reports GameSetWatch. "The new version of Dear Esther will take the game to a completely new level and we're confident it will be one of the stand-out indie titles of 2011," says creator Dan Pinchbeck. "Once again, this shows that games are probably the most exciting and innovative medium on the planet right now, and we're really happy to be right at the cutting edge of that."
