The over the top in your face attitude of that trailer doesn't fit the game at all. What a weirdly tone deaf marketing decision.

No idea what this is, but they need to hire some better animators.

If I remember correctly their original intent was using Kickstarter to fund a big budget remake of Outcast. That fell apart and they put out a faster, cheaper HD update. Watched some Let's Plays and it appears to be exactly that. Gameplay and audio is the same. The models and very aliased looking voxel based environments were replaced. I loved the original, and right now Second Contact is on sale for $30 on Steam (normally $35) and I'd say that's a tad high. Will definitely grab for $10-$15.

The original was so far ahead of its time that it barely ran on most computers. This looks so far behind its time that it will barely be installed on most computers.

I couldn't agree more. Who's idea was that? Sure, Cutter Slade was always a tough guy (in the German version, Infogrames gave him the voice of Bruce Willis), but he was completely out of his element in this weird world and had to make friends to stay alive. Also, he was almost always outgunned in an open fight. This trailer reminds me of the "Mighty No. 9" Masterclass trailer, totally missing the point of the game and alienating its target audience (old people who don't mind the visuals).

...

Hey, there's the lava snake that used to kill me while I was trying to take screenshots for the review!
