    This.

    If people are complaining for even the tittle screen, imagine if they just changed the slightest bit of art.

    I would have loved to see everything that is pre-rendered at more resolution, but, if they don't have the sources there is nothing they can do.

    Oh yes, of course, they could call bill gates and elon musk to fund and build a remake with world class artist while maintaining all the code and so, but this is real world.

    EE is what we got, an improved, updated, almost untouched and fixed experience of a cult classic, enjoy it or don't but throwing a tantrum for things that are not going to happen is beyond childish.

    So all you did was essentially making a version using most of the free mods which anyone with half a brain can install in under 30 minutes for free by themselves and adding some minor completely superfluous gimmicks to it, and for that you guys and gals want to be payed 20 bucks for it.

    Another glorious cashgrab, and you guys even pretend like you were the developer of the game.

    What a joke. If at least people could chose to buy the original version instead of the EE but somehow they are not available anymore on Steam and GoG. I wonder why...

    Not up to me, there are legal reasons why the store pages are like that.

    That said, the PST:EE in-game credits list the original developers, just like all the previous EE games did.

    Hey aVENGER, can you confirm that the pathing routine was improved? It looks like it in the vid.

    PST:EE uses the same pathfinding code as Siege of Dragonspear, with minor improvements on top of that.

    That code is more advanced than what was used in the original Planescape Torment.

    It would be a nice gesture to have the Black Isle logo on the load-up screen though.

    Talk to some of your colleagues, see if you can get it.

    Not an Infinity Engine game, so likely never.

    :reads interview:

    Okay, this sounds like how they should do EEs. Various QoL improvements, made it work reliably on modern devices, fixed teh speling, remastered the music, and left the game itself the fuck alone.

    :is mollified:

    To anyone missing the point, the www.planescape.com webpage had as title (if you looked at the top of your browser/tab) : PLAN ESCAPE (with the space) instead of Planescape.

    It means either Beamdog never understood what Planescape was, or were making loosy joke on people who never understood.
    The meaning of the campaign setting never was to escape from planes, but to offer a panorama of planes, so to avoid confusion, TSR made the Lady of Pain's head between PLANE and SCAPE in every Planescape's product.

    But here in 2017, we still have people thinking of PLAN-ESCAPE or PLANET-ESCAPE or some kind of bad shit.
    Planescape released first in 1994.
    Seriously.

    Hi, aVENGER , I have a couple of questions (maybe they were already answered somewhere - I have not read the whole thread).

    1. Is the remastered soundtrack included with the game (as mp3/FLAC/etc.) or does it have to be bought separately?
    Oh, wait, it is a separate $10 download on Steam, and not available on GOG at all. Que?
    2. Does the Windows version include touchscreen-optimized interface option?
