Skywind, an attempt to remake Morrowind using the game engine behind Skyrim, is a pretty incredible little project. It’s essentially a mod, but it’s much more than that — it’s a homage, it’s an exercise in revised nostalgia, it’s an attempt to revive one of the most popular games in The Elder Scrolls series.
The above video is the latest footage of the project: a 13 minute long exploration of some areas you might be familiar with. I’m not, but that’s probably because it’s been the better part of a decade since I last played Morrowind. Also: that game was really rather large.
I have fond memories of Morrowind. I think I’ll play this, even if it’s just to celebrate the huge amount of work that’s gone into making this a reality. Also, I think I just want to hear some of that sweet Morrowind music and bask in that nostalgia one more time before I die. I think that’s a powerful ambition.
