The Dutch developer ‘Abstraction Games‘ released a remake of the classic top-down shooter 1993 The Chaos Engine. The game is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. The original author, Mike Montgomery, has participated in the remake.
The Chaos Engine appeared in 1993 for the Commodore Amiga. Then brought to MS-DOS, SNES, Sega Mega Drive and Atari by the British developer Bitmap Brothers. Twenty years later, the Dutch developer Abstraction Games from Valkenswaard added new platforms to that list. The game was released last week on Steam, Get Games and GOG.
Abstraction Games got into a developing cooperation with Mike Montgomery, one of the founders of Bitmap Brothers. The goal was to stay true to the original faithfully as possible. However the graphics are polished and there are some extensions added. For those who do not even need to have, there is the classic mode.
The three-man team of Abstraction Games was previously responsible for the port of Hotline Miami.
