Publisher Ziggurat Interactive announces plans to remaster, rework, and restore
some classic console and PC games from the past for modern systems.
"Everyone at Ziggurat shares a passion for classic and modern games, and we’ve
turned that passion into a game company that will be unlike any other," said
Wade Rosen, CEO of Ziggurat. "For each classic game we work with, we’re doing
more than just reworking it –– we’re improving upon it in ways that are
respectful to the original while preserving what the fans loved about it, and
also boosting the ‘awesome’ of it for modern players." They have unveiled their
first three projects as remakes of Deadly Dozen
, Super Huey
The first games Ziggurat will release include
remade versions of these classic titles:
- First released in 2001,
Deadly Dozen is
a WWII tactical squad-based shooter developed by nFusion Interactive.
Infiltrate German-occupied territory with your squad of 12 military misfits.
Destroy, steal, and kidnap your way out. Battle your way through a campaign
spanning six war-torn countries. Each of your 12 death-dealing squadmates
specializes in a different skillset such as sniper, demolitions, etc.,
requiring players to use teamwork if they want to survive.
- Classic battlefield helicopter combat simulation Super Huey
returns to the skies! This 1985 retro Mega-hit, developed by Cosmi, features
four immersive modes: flight training, rescue missions, exploration, and
combat. Players must use their multitasking skills to defend brothers in
arms or gather critical information about the terrain, all while keeping
that bird in the air.
- Fantasy action game
Forbidden Forest is back, challenging archers to cleanse the woods
of evil. Armed with only four arrows per level, players must eliminate
monsters that include bees, giant spiders, mutated frogs, snakes, wizards,
and dragons. Four levels of difficulty— Innocent, Trooper, Daredevil, and
Crazy—are sure to keep brave archers on their toes in this updated version
of a 1983 Cosmi classic that used a Demogorgon before it was cool.
Each of these licensed titles will be adapted to run on the latest hardware,
featuring updated visuals and gameplay.
