A playable, though glitchy and enemyfree, alpha version has been released to backers of this remake of Looking Glass’s influential game. It’s looking like the update will be staying extremely close to the original, with wall textures and map layouts that look just like what we played in 1994, just with massively increased resolution, and much better lit. The claustrophobic nature of the space station setting – either the ceilings are really low, or the player character is surprisingly tall – brings to mind Alien Isolation. It’s a long wait until 2020, but we’re glad this is still getting made.
