Monolith Productions' 1997 Build Engine Classic "Blood" Getting Nightdive Remaster

HOLY FLURKING SCHNIT! My favorite game of all time "Blood" is being remastered by Nightdive Studios!

I am indescribably thrilled and overjoyed by this news as it has been a long time coming. The game has been languishing for years due to the new rights holder sitting on the IP, declining to license or sell it out for anything less than a quoted, "Insulting amount of money", and outright refusing to allow the creators to release the original source code so that fans could more easily mod, preserve or modernize this classic title. It seems that Nightdive Studios has finally cracked that nut and come to a business agreement with Atari to allow them to remaster Blood. Hopefully this can be the start of something of a revival of the franchise, and a simple remaster of the original game can lead to a full remake a la System Shock, then on to the sequel and potentially new games!

Do we have any other Blood fans in the house?

    Oh shiiiiiit! Blood is fucking great, and easily my favorite Build engine game. Like it's not even close. Do we know any details about the remaster? Because honestly all I need are some QoL improvements for modern computers and control schemes. The game looks perfect for what it is.

    Edit: I was so excited I didn't even stop to read the article. I'm one of those people now. It sounds like their intention is exactly what I was hoping for.

    Frankly I hope it is released far and wide. I would't mind owning multiple copies of the remaster across platforms. I'd probably get it on PC and Switch.

    Might get this again because playing it through DOSBox was annoying. Depends on the price.
