    They could have instead made a report on what they learned from the demo's feedback, and how they've been/will apply those lessons...

    The levels are a lot brighter now compared to the demo. Definitely an improvement.

    To me the demo had a lot of potential, as long as you understood the budget and scope of the project, so it looking better after some feedback, polish and tweaks wouldn't be a crazy thing.

    The demo was pretty good. People's expectations are unrealistic though because it's System Shock.

    Except that it wasn't. I'm not sure why anyone would even try to claim that. The demos were roughly on par with one another. The Unity demo just ran a lot smoother than the Unreal demo until it was patched.

    So improving the lighting was indeed just a polish pass on the level ? Doh, didn't expect that. I guess I should continue sucking dicks then, heh, unfairlight ?

    I'm just saying it was the Unity demo that set high expectations and I still prefer it's visual style, not to mention the melee combat felt much better. I'm sure the game is gonna be good once it gets polished.

    Oh god, please don't start on a tired remake of SS2 as well. The remastered Enhanced Edition they teased is pointless enough (has to fork off of the original source and compete with NewDark's stability and native mod support). I shudder to think what a modern developer would seek to "improve" about SS2, even considering their newfound level of caution with the first game's remake.

    Honestly, I wish we could stop with this whole remake business in general. Either make something new or patch up something old while retaining as much as possible (old aesthetics, gameplay quirks, and all); this weird middle ground leaves little room for creativity while also overwriting the original work in public consciousness. The fact that a zombie imitation can find an audience that would never have played the original isn't consolation enough for the cynical futility of it all.

    I think the remastered Enhanced Edition they teased is the remake being referred to here?

    IIRC NDS has largely KEX/remaster team and SS remake team. SS2 remaster is being done by KEX team, and I'm pretty sure Kick talked about remake team's next project.

    Remake of 1 made sense for UI/controls if nothing else... remake of 2 makes zero sense. Minor mods already make it 100% great on modern machines.

    Last time i checked this tread they were talking about changing the levels to make them simpler. Is this confirmed decline or not?

    They rebooted development some time ago, the latest December Demo map layout was 1:1 for the most part.

    If nothing else a better ending cutscene that isn't a schlocky joke that is completely at odds with the rest of the game would be nice.

    Looks like they're pretty confident about 2020 release.
