Now in the midst of an HD remake on the PC, MAC and Steam, Memetic Games producer Joe de Lange told Examiner why the game’s newest edition will take the game well past its cult favorite status.

“The low-fi DS version had a grittiness to it that was quite charming and added a certain edgy quality to the general atmosphere,” de Lange told Examiner. “We have tried to retain that in some ways, but converting to HD graphics meant we had to create a lot of new visual detail that just wasn't required on the small screen of the DS.

“For the most part, we couldn't use the original models, animations, textures or sounds. That being said, we wanted to preserve the feel of the game; it's soul. The single biggest challenge was not technological but rather the fact that that playing games on PC is a very different experience compared to playing on the DS. We spent a lot time trying get that balance right.”
