    Well that's not strictly true, the timeframe for the sequel to Primordia really depends upon the upcoming success of the HD Director's Cut Remake... ;)

    In a way, the HD remake is laying technical groundwork for the sequel. Check-mate Mark, you've been busted!

    because kathy remaster is a cash grab and stains the otherwise pleasant memories of the original which fate primordia should be spared

    it's not worth a single dollar if you've already played kathy rain
    if you have not, buying the original is cheaper and more fun

    Well - the thing is so many people complained about the low res graphics in Primordia - I like the pixellated look, and I also did that to save time animating. But the fact is the original background sketches had a lot of detail that was lost in conversion, and a lot of stuff was painted hastily and could use a few more touches of the brush.

    I think add onto that the fact that well, I like the brown - it kinda is just a smidge *too* brown.Now I haven't played me no Kathy Rain - and that looks amazing (the original) but I have played GK Sins of the Fathers, it's one of my absolute faves if not top P&C delight.
    The remake of that made my fucking eyes bleed. No purple highlight hues on portraits. Evil Priestess voice acting lacked ALL flavor. All graphics just shit, watered down almost deviant art level guff*.

    THIS, is what I would absolutely avoid with an HD remake. I would just bump the graphics way up, add some more flavor and adjust *some* hues here and there. Really accentuate the things I liked about the graphics. Make it pop a little more and yeah. Higher res. Not rocket science.
    What I *won't* do is delete or water anything down. Sprites are something I need to ponder more. Possibly just use my res "template" from Strangeland and Trenchmouth.

    The music might be a contentious topic but how it breaks down is basically like this;

    1) I love Nathan's soundtrack, and respect his contribution and fans feelings about it

    2) I actually fought really hard to do the soundtrack myself during production - almost to the brink of deciding not to publish or going commercial if it meant not using my OST for Primordia+

    3) I actually made most of the soundtrack myself alongside Nathan to give him an idea of how I wanted it to sound, of which there is a 100+ amount of tracks composed by yours truly

    4) I'm open to compromises here. Really ideally I'd like to do a new soundtrack that used a lot of my original Primordial tracks, and then compose some wholly new tracks with Nathan, hopefully based upon some of *his* original tracks for the game - so we don't lose that now nostalgic feel, which fuckin' surprises me that *I* now get nostalgia from it... Jesus I'm getting too old.

    So yeah. I'm constantly thinking about this. It's not in the works, but it's *certainly* on the table.

    *the most guilty of this is the Monkey Island remake imo. It looks like it was made by a team from Fiver. Dunno how anyone feels about that here. In my eyes it looks absolutely wretched compared to the original. ABSOLUTELY WRETCHED. :D *shudder*

    +bloody glad I didn't spit the dummy in the end lol

    Just finished this, nice game with a very good atmosphere and great artstyle. Though i felt like it ended too fast, like if it was just 2/3 of whole game. I expected that you could do something with Sad Robot and that record (like some epilogue set in HORUS). Now i want to check something with simillar visuals and post-apo setting, any suggestions?

    Looks like they have important info hidden in an update!

    Good for the movie, bad about roguelite and procedurally generated. These last two words usually translated to "mediocre" at best.

    The first achievement I got on my playthrough of the Monkey Island 2 Special Edition was "Keeping it Old School: Switch to classic mode at least once." because I did that as soon as I started the game and never looked back.
    The original MI games are absolutely beautiful, and the semi-realistic style meshes well with the absurdist humor. The new weird cartoony style doesn't fit at all.

    A sequel? A prequel? A NFT thing?
    Anything works! Except the last one.

    Jesus Christ, don't say the word NFT out loud near Horatio! I would literally cut off my own right hand before I'd make an NFT of my work - let alone my most prominent work :D

    The other things? Possibly ;)

    ...Or maybe something else?
