Back in September Memetic Games and Digital Tribes Games announced that they would be developing an updated version of Dementium 2, which originally launched on the DS in 2010, for PC and Mac. Back then, the Renegade Kid-developed horror FPS was praised for delivering a solid shooter experience on Nintendo’s original dual screen handheld.
The enhanced remake is being built on the Unity Engine, and it will support both Xbox 360 and mouse/keyboard configurations. A new trailer was released for the game, and it looks, well, kind of cheesy, to be honest. But seriously, that may not be a bad thing. Check it out for yourself.
Truth be told, I actually find the trailer a bit endearing. It has a distinct ’90s charm to it. Visually, Dementium 2 on PC and Mac doesn’t appear to be a graphical powerhouse, but it certainly looks like a game that would’ve creeped some folks out a few years ago. I’m not going to count it out yet, because the game proved to be quite enjoyable on the DS, so it’s likely that PC and Mac players will also be treated to a joyfully chilling title.
At the very least, it would be cool if we got a pleasantly campy game that’s fun to play.
