Expect A Remake Of Midwinter, The Snow-Covered, Post-Apocalyptic Classic, By 2015

My fondest memories of Midwinter on the Amiga are actually my most painful. If I wasn’t constantly losing the fight to save the island, I was getting injured skiing. Or crashing my snow mobile. Or getting shot. Yet, despite the absurd difficulty, it was seven degrees of awesome. I’m hoping Chilli Hugger’s remake is even better.

Announced a few days ago

Chilli Hugger CEO Chris Wild, responsible for bringing Singleton’s The Lords Of Midnight to iOS, will be managing development. According to Wild, the remake won’t be a modern recreation, but an opportunity to “fully realise Mike’s ambitious design without the limitations of 16-bit hardware”.

To the right is a shot from Chilli Hugger comparing the original game with the new one. I can’t wait to see more.

  • Never got to play Midwinter – I was young and had limited gaming options – but I remember so many rave reviews and walkthroughs in gaming mags that made me want to play it. Guess I’ll get that chance.

  • Amazing how this kind of game has never been created since… So tactical, and I even enjoyed the hours of skiing about between waypoints and ambush sites! We’ll done, you kings of Amiga, you’ll be getting a few bucks out of me.
