New Amberstar Remake in development

Postby AtariFan » Fri Jan 09, 2015 8:51 pm

Revive Entertainment is working on a remake of Amberstar:

In 1992 a German company named Thalion released the original Amberstar. A classical RPG with turn based battles. The game received recognition for its complex gamesplay, compelling story, challenging riddles as well as for its humor. Many gamers that grew up with the old Amiga and Atari ST systems have fond memories that last up to this date. Since Thalion went under just a few years after, the originally planed series of three games has never been completed.

The members of Revive Entertainment decided not only to close that hole, but to give Amberstar the recognition it deserves by bringing it back to life in a modern form. If you are interested in our progress or even want to share your input with us, please don't hesitate to get in contact with us. We will release Amberstar around December 2015, until then the team is putting in a lot of effort to recreate the positive memories so many people had.

Welcome back to Lyramion!

Otherwise the website is quite empty yet - more information and screenshots hopefully will follow soon.

Yeah, fingers crossed it still feels like Amberstar

I do hope they can secure the copyright if they hope to sell it.

I just finish Legend of Grimrock 2 http://www.grimrock.net (remake of Dungeon Master)

...and after few hours of play I though how it would be perfect to remake AmberStar, or make third part, using Grimrock 2 engine!
