Blade Runner 1997 Getting Remaster

If you are like me then you will have missed the 1997 Blade Runner video game.  Now might be a good time to keep an eye on it again.

Nightdive Studios, known for restoring classic video games such as System Shock and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, has partnered with production company Alcon Entertainment to restore the 1997 point-and-click adventure title Blade Runner for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, as well as a PC version through online storefront Steam, according to THR.

Based on Ridley Scott’s 1982 cyberpunk noir — but not a direct adaptation of the film — Blade Runner follows detective Ray McCoy as he hunts down renegade replicants, or androids that look remarkably human, in a futuristic version of 2019 Los Angeles. The game’s narrative runs tangentially with the events of the film.
