The robots are coming (and they're remastering Star Wars games graphics) 31 Mar, 2019 / 5 comments

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, an FPS game released by pre-Phantom Menace LucasArts in 1997, has gotten some HD textures. The game can be procured on both Steam and GOG.

What makes the story interesting is that the new textures were created by an AI. I can see the Black Mirror episode already.

Apologies to Scummbuddy for the delay on this, as they let us know about the news in an earlier story. I can only assume most other Mojo staff has perished in an ongoing, secretive, Snatcher-like murder campaign by these AIs.

    Why not? A good game is a good game :)

    In 1998, PC Gamer declared it the best computer game ever released: "Such a class act from start to finish that even people who know nothing about PC games can tell they're looking at greatness. It's a fantastic game, and one we never hesitate to recommend to any kind of gamer".

    Jedi Knight was the premier FPS of its day! It was Half Life before Half Life came along and took its crown. How it’s been forgotten. A great game, from the era when LucasArts made great games.



    Reckon it's worth a try now?

    2014+ Telltale would have tried to make a Black Mirror game, I feel.



    That Bandersnatch choose-your-own-adventure Black Mirror episode definitely feels like what Telltale would have done. Telltale was apparently negotiating with Netflix for years, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was supposed to be a Telltale gig at one point. I wonder if it uses some of the same tech developed for Minecraft. I haven't played the Netflix version so I can't compare. In any case, they're going to do a million more, and somewhere there's an alternate universe where that results in the Telltale comeback we're missing out on.


    Oh wait yeah Star Wars.

    (That actually sounds pretty cool, I'll check it out)
