  • System Shock Kickstarter Campaign Underway; Demo Available Now

    Earlier today, the Kickstarter campaign for the System Shock reboot officially kicked off.
    Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to a greedy TriOptimum executive. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to discover the surgeons are missing, the station is in disrepair, and the once-prime corporate facility now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots, and mutated beings, all programmed to serve a ruthless A.I.: SHODAN. There's scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror...

    General Features
    • A modern take on System Shock, a faithful reboot; it’s not Citadel Station as it was, but as you remember it. Many improvements, overhauls and changes are being implemented to capture the spirit of what the original game was trying to convey, and bring it to contemporary gamers.
    • Re-imagined enemies, weapons, and locations by original concept artist Robb Waters.
    • Terri Brosius reprises her role as SHODAN, and new VO will be recorded.
    • Brand new musical score composed by Jonathan Peros.
    • The user interface, game mechanics, enemies, and puzzles will be updated to reflect modern aesthetics and sensibilities, while maintaining the feel of the original.

    Scope Features
    • $900k Goal: Modern Inventory Management, Modern Controls, New Puzzles, Updated Faithful Levels, Game Difficulty Modes.
    • $1.7m Goal : Enemy limb dismemberment, More puzzles, Ammo types/weapon settings, Vending machines, Basic crafting/research, RPG leveling with perks/skills, Weapon upgrading, Hardcore mode (No respawning), Ironman mode (Only 1 savegame. If you die, the save is deleted)

    Nightdive Studios brought together the talents of Chris Avellone, Warren Spector, and many industry veterans that worked on franchises such as the original System Shock, BioShock, Fallout: New Vegas, and Warcraft III to name a few.

    Nightdive is working on the game for PC, Xbox One, OS X, and Linux. The team is looking for $900,000 in funding from Kickstarter and they're already well on their way towards their goal.

    The best part? There is a demo available now.
    We want to demonstrate our commitment and passion for System Shock by providing a fun and exciting experience to potential backers. This demo represents the look and feel that we want to achieve with the final version we'll deliver to you, our backers. Please be aware, this is a proof of concept; the PERFORMANCE, FEATURES, and VISUALS are subject to change. We hope you enjoy your time aboard Citadel Station! SHODAN eagerly awaits your arrival...
