One of the most addictive games ever is getting a 21st Century makeover - Jeff Minter's Llamasoft is working on a re-imagining of his crowning glory, Tempest 2000
After a couple of attempts of recapturing the Atari Jaguar game's charms, Minter finally seems to have hit gold with the announcement TxK on the PS Vita!
In a blog post, Minter says...
We’re going to base it on the essence of the original T2K. It’ll be the pure, straightforward shooter that maybe you hoped for when you first saw Space Giraffe. We’re not going to overload you with ultra psychedelia, but we will make it fluid and colourful and awesome-looking on the Vita’s delicious, vibrant OLED screen. We’re going to give you a perfect treat for your eyes, ears and thumbs with a modern extrapolation of one of the best shooters ever made on hardware that’s just perfectly suited for it, and in a way that retains the purity of the original design.
It’s going to be awesome .
