The mother of all full-motion video games, Night Trap, will get a remastered re-release, director James Riley confirmed today.
“Please understand I do plan to re-release Night Trap and have been talking with a number of interested parties to do so,” Riley, who owns the rights to the game, responded to fans on the game’s Facebook community page. “However, the specific platform(s) have not been confirmed (including online) and I will let you know once we have a definite plan and release schedule.
“Night Trap will come back in better resolution and game play than before, we just want to be sure it’s the best strategy for all involved.”
Night Trap originally launched on the Sega CD in 1992, was met with much controversy at the time. It was among the games cited in the Congressional hearings that led to the formation of the ESRB. It has since come to be regarded as a classic gaming gem from the bygone days of live-actor FMV titles.
