We’ve gathered a team of industry veterans from games like Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect, and BioShock to create a faithful reboot of the classic game we all know and love. In System Shock, you’ll take on the role of a resourceful hacker as you explore and survive the terrors of Citadel Station brought on by a rogue AI named SHODAN. 

To ensure this reboot is as true to the original as possible, we’ve been collaborating with the original developers of System Shock 1.  Understanding what they would do differently and keep the same has helped us to refresh a classic in ways Looking Glass Studios would have.

We’re making System Shock for gamers that missed the opportunity to appreciate the original, and for the dedicated fans of System Shock 1.  We love talking to our backers, so please help support this project and share your thoughts as we make the best System Shock for all of you!

I've always only been vaguely aware of this series but the remake looks pretty damn intense. Definitely going to pick this one up.

As much as i loved the Bioshock Trilogy (started the series on PS3, switched to 360 for the sequels and then played through entire series again on PS4), they have paled next to my love of System Shock II on the PC.

So, having never played the original System Shock...i have mixed feelings about this.

Will it feel dated compared to what came after it or refreshing?.

Considering System Shock 2 wasn't really System Shock 2 until later in the development, i'd say it won't matter too much.

Like Hicks I was aware of the series. I like the atmosphere in this, it reminds me of Isolation. The combat and enemies don’t do much for me. I hope that changes with more resources in the kickstarter. If all that improves I’ll be glad to play this classic remade.

It was at one point in Steam but it seems to have disappeared from the internet. I am quite sure I didn't imagine playing it in 2016. It was a playable first level of the game with about 15 minutes of gameplay.

Anyone else see a connection between this and the Giger art? It was the first thing that stuck out to me. Maybe the original Shodan image is based on something like this.





Also if I recall correctly, the Alpha was critically panned because it played like a bad FPS. The trailer doesn't look like it deviates at all from the Alpha, which might mean it bodes poorly for the game.

I hope not. I love the atmosphere in the trailer. However, I cannot deny the combat and enemy A.I. seemed underwhelming.

I might have to get this since the movement controls in the original are painfully dated. As in, having to click/drag the mouse in a certain direction to turn dated. 2 is great, would be better if it was less ball bustingly hard and the last two levels and the ending were't crap.
