t’s been all too long since Monolith did anything that made me want to camp outside their premises waving a banner reading ‘I LOVE YOU! YOU MAKE GAMING A BETTER PLACE! NO-ONE LIVES FOREVER FOREVER!’ Who knows which staff left, what parts of the company were sold to which other companies, who got cold feet about risk-taking – all I know is that the all-too-ordinary FEAR games make me mourn for what was and what might have been.

At least one Monolither wants to revisit past glories, specifically the reasonably batshit and enthusiastically gruesome Doomlike and horror pastiche Blood. Founder Jace Hall isn’t looking to Kickstarter or a reboot, however – he just wants to get the game back into fans’ hands with a few modernised bells and whistles attached.

Fan-made Doom graphical/modern OS-friendly update ZDaemon is his point of reference, and he’s talking about making this tinkered Blood free despite expecting to spend some funbucks making it. “It will be all for the fun of it”, quoth he on Blood fansite The Postmortem.

Apparently the former Monolith man has both the source code and the ‘resources’ to make this happen, and claims “I certainly will be able to and will get all the support I need from all/any parties that may have legal interest in the game.” So the major barrier is interest, apparently. That’s a happy situation to be in, I’d have thought.
This MUSt be the year of the remakes.
SO glad.
So many really good old games getting the new makeup slapped on them.
CT paved the way.

I never did play Blood, but I was always interested in doing so. And now it's being remade. Well hopefully it comes by soon.

Well well, this is certainly interesting too. I never played blood, hopefully this will be just as good as the originals!

Cool. Always wanted to play blood, but old games can be tough to run on modern systems, etc.

I love how the games that Dave is most excited for seem to have been played by very few people. It's like the only games he finds to be perfect no ones played.

Well, Blood was played by a lot of people back in the day.
So was Carmageddon (1 and 2).
Borderlands was one of the best selling games of all time (according to Randy Pitchford).
Recoil is the only game I can remember that not a lot of people played, but I thought was a blast.

But, yes, I do tend to like games that mainstream gaming seems not to like very much (like The First Templar and Hydrophobia: Prophecy).

I am just old, and weird, I guess.
