16-bit sci-fi traditional Flashback is getting (one other) sequel • Eurogamer.web


Coming to PC and consoles subsequent yr.

Developer Microids has revealed it is engaged on a direct sequel to 16-bit sci-fi traditional Flashback – one thing of a shocking announcement, given it already has one.

The unique Flashback, launched by Delphine Software program in 1992, adopted the far-flung future adventures of agent Conrad B. Hart on the path of shapeshifting aliens trying to infiltrate human society – an investigation that, very like Delphine’s earlier One other World, took the type of a platform-puzzler, full with strikingly cinematic rotoscoped visuals.

Flashback proved to be sufficient of successful that, in 1995, it acquired a sequel titled Fade to Black, which took the sequence into full 3D for some third-person adventuring – and it even bought the two.5D remake therapy, albeit one which wasn’t particularly well-received, in 2013.

Flashback because it appeared for its 25th anniversary re-release in 2018.

Now, with Flashback’s 30th anniversary looming, French writer Microids has introduced it is engaged on a brand new sequel, which, regardless of the existence of Fade to Black, it is calling Flashback 2.

Whether or not it will see a return to the retro rotoscoped fantastic thing about the unique, or one thing extra alongside the traces of its comparatively new-fangled successors, stays to be seen – as does just about every part else given the restricted data in Microids’ announcement tweet.

What we do know, although, is that it is deliberate to launch on PC and unspecified consoles a while subsequent yr, and that extra particulars might be shared in the end.
