With less than twelve hours until its highly successful Kickstarter campaign is set to end, Nightdive Studio’s System Shock remake has captured over $1.3 million from 21,000 backers. The studio took to the funding portal last month to raise funds for the video game and surpassed $450,000 in less than 24 hours.
“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.”
The crew recently stated the remake is on track for PlayStation 4 (PS4) video game console release. Project director of the studio, Jason Fader recently explained:
“After we saw the overwhelming demand for PS4, we reshuffled our priorities and focused on talking to Sony about making that happen. After a few weeks and lotttts of emails, we are officially on track for bringing System Shock to the PS4!”
