Guess the game...
Before there was BioShock, there was System Shock 2. The first full title produced by Irrational Games when it was still a tiny spin-off from Looking Glass Studios, this terrifying hybrid of a first person shooter and RPG first came out 15 years ago today. Let’s all remember in turn just how scared we were when we first stepped into the Von Braun spaceship.
Playing System Shock 2 is a frightening experience, and no moment is quite as shocking as seeing the face of the villain SHODAN for the first time. Now, one modeler is taking the time to render that scene in all its glory (Spoilers ahead).
Briefly: Who would have guessed that this is what the Little Sisters inBioShock started out as? Eurogamer just published a thorough report on the origins of the seminal first person shooter that’s worth a close read.
It’s been a long time coming — the folks at GOG have claimed that System Shock 2 was the most requested game to be brought onto the service, considering how difficult it was to actually find and play the game on modern PCs. But now the game is available for purchase at $9.99US.
Irrational Games, creators of BioShock, uncovered a long-lost treasure the other day: a sketchbook, full of concept art for the game that got the studio rolling, System Shock 2.
