Over two and half weeks after launching its Kickstarter campaign, Nightdive Studios’ System Shock remake has not only achieved its initial $900,000, it has also surpassed $1 million thanks to over 16,000 backers.
As previously reported, The studio took to the crowdfunding giant to raise funds for the remake of the 1994 sci-fi video game and surpassed $450,000 in less than 24 hours. The game’s description reads:
“System Shock was one of the first 3D games that took a methodical approach to exploration while revealing a story driven narrative through audio logs and messages scattered throughout the game world. It was a revolutionary step forward for the medium in a time when developers first began experimenting with interactive story telling. Players were trapped aboard Citadel Station as they fought to survive against the cyborgs and mutated crew members corrupted by a maniacal A.I. known as SHODAN, one of the most treacherous antagonists ever conceived. System Shock offered an unparalleled experience that would solidify it as one of the greatest games of all time.”
- A “modern take” on the game. Offers up many improvements, overhauls, and changes that the original game didn’t have.
- Re-imagined enemies, weapons, and locations. Original concept artist, Robb Waters, did these.
- Brand new music score that was composed by Jonathan Peros.
- Various items were updated, including user interface, game mechanic, enemies, and puzzles.
After successfully secured $900,000, Stephen Kick, CEO of Nightdive Studios, shared:
“There’s no possible way I could convey how grateful the Nightdive team is to the 14,000+ backers who put their trust in us – we’re having a lot of fun remaking System Shock and we owe it all to you!”
The campaign is set to close July 28th.
