Fan's Remaking The Original 1987 Meal Gear In Unreal Engine

Fan's Remaking The Original 1987 Meal Gear In Unreal Engine

Sounds like an ambitious project, but not an impossible one. Hideo Kojima's 1987 one-man sneaking title Metal Gear is much smaller game than the ones that followed. A revamped fan-version makes sense.

Metal Gear fan Boker posted early shots of this project here. We can see the tanks and the environment of the game's first part where we infiltrate Outer Heaven. There's also a short video and a few more shots over here. So far, so good!

    Meal Gear, eh? Is that like Nettle Gear? Or Metal Gore?

      Sounds like a cannibal corpse song

      "This one is called Metal Goooooooooooooore" *head windmills*

        I can already hear the shredding ;-)

      Metal Gore, Al Gore's less famous but more violent and shit kicking brother, here to rid the world of fossil fuels

    Oh boy, I hope it's a stealth based cooking game as good as the original!

    On topic though, are we taking bets on how long it will take Konami to swing a nail-studded bat at this thing? My guess is not very long.

    Meal Gear! A bipedal walking tank that fire food at the hungry!

    Designed to replace Meal Team Six...

    I've been expecting this since Ground Zeroes hit the PC, but as a Phantom Pain mod. I guess it's easier to do this from scratch with Unreal but the new engine is such a great match for the original Metal Gear.

    #3 Steak Eater is my favourite though Guns Of The Pastry Chefs was also great.

    Too bad it'll never see the light of day. Konami will cock block this. You know, because they're evil dickbags

    Makes me want an ape escape tie-in stage done in unreal engine. Nothing beats nostalgia though.

    Anyone else hoping they do a Kickstater and get some pennies together for David Hayter to do the voice?

      I read pennies as penis :(

        No, you're thinking of the Dickstarter campaign.

    I think I heard about this, or something like this a while ago, and David Hayter actually put his hand up to do the voice of snake and help re-write the script. Konami originally were on board but then pulled the rug out from under them.

      It's an unrelated project. Really sad to see Konami kill that original project though. I feel like the shenanigans with Kojima are the major reason, as he actually seemed all for it before it got canned.

    Konami better not drop the ban hammer on this like Square did that Chrono Trigger fan remake!
