Featuring beautiful stylish graphics, stunning presentation, and a wonderful storyline, the game continues to be enjoyed on more modern systems including the iPhone and Android platforms.
Those who recall playing the original back on the Amiga in the early 90s will no doubt have been blown away by the stunning intro sequence, which sees physicist, Lester Knight Chaykin, return to his office in the early hours of the morning, only for a scientific experiment to go horribly wrong and send him off to another world.
This intro sequence recently inspired YouTube user and animator rickonami, to have a go at producing a high definition remake, which he finally uploaded to the video sharing web site a few days back.
Here's what he had to say;
"I apologize for the low quality of the video captures, specially the underwater scene, i used some primitive equipment.The remake really is a stunning piece of work, and has quite clearly been a labour of love for the animator.
I try to keep as the original intro as possible, with respect of Eric Chahi's vision and art.
This project was in my mind for a year now, and took me 3 months to complete.
Hope you guys like it :)"
You can check out the video below, and once you've finished watching don't forget to leave some feedback on rickonami's YouTube channel.
My thanks go to English Amiga Board user s2325 for the heads-up on this one.
