for those of you who never played it



I played it twice one billion years ago and loved it , since then it became unplayable in Win XP and Win7 and when it came out in a Win10 version (v1.1) it visually aged a billion years ...

today a completely updated version was released , hopefully the gameplay did not age.

worth a try IMO smile

I just saw this the other day. I never played it back on release but had since bought it on GOG.com and really liked what I played. I didn't know this was out already. Is it a remaster in the since its been put through a new engine?

edit: I just watched that video and it definitely looks completely new. This looks really fun and its gorgeous.

it is gorgeous - you can feel that they used all the resources they had in improving the game engine, it still feels like you are playing the original.

Yep, there's stargates in the game. Actually its full of really unique story lore that definitely has a Stargate the motion picture vibe at least when it comes to the stargates and almost Egyptian-like alien civilization and the music in this game is great. Hope to get the remake someday but its pretty expensive.

What is it? A RPG? A online RPG? A shooter? An adventure game? I have never heard of it.

It's an action-adventure game in an open world where science and magic meet.

that is exactly what it is - and with a great soundtrack

I started to play it - and it feels great !

this is one of those games that deserved much more success than it did have at the time, and it is a testament to how good it is that they managed to release it again while keeping the gameplay exactly as it was.

Wasn't it also one of the first games to render a 3D world with voxel technology? I still love the way the old one looks. Even those elements may be dated there's something about voxels that I love. Really organic or something, can't quite describe it. I think that's part of why I loved all the Novalogic games like Delta Force and Comanche.

voxels ! that one was a dead end as soon as more powerful GPU came out.

you can still play it - v1.1 is compatible with Win10 .
