Looking back at some of the recent failings of projects financed by crowdfunding (take Vega + for example) it is hard not to become a sceptic on the whole concept. Lucky for us, every time the trust issues start to build up someone comes in with a project that delivers everything it promised and more. Hunter's Moon Remastered made by Thalamus is one of such projects.
The original Hunter's Moon was a decent shoot-em-up game with an interesting concept. It used the method of procedural content generation which allowed a huge and complex game to be made without it taking too much space. Strategic thinking, not just good reflexes, was a key to winning the game. It looked good, it played good, and there is no better way to celebrate its 30th anniversary than to make a remastered edition.
Key features of the new release:
The digital version of the game is now available for purchase ($7.99) with cartridge coming later this year.
