Following the news that one fan remade Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer' using Unreal Engine 4, fan-driving projects were given a hefty spotlight once more. With the Star Wars celebration coming up soon, it only makes sense that fans and gamers alike would have their heads up in a galaxy far, far away. The latest project to deserve that limelight? A fan-made Star Wars: Dark Forces remake from the beloved PC classic, and it looks beyond stunning for anyone that may have missed out on it back in the 90s.
For those that don't know, Dark Forces was a PC and PlayStation game that first made its debut back in the 90s as part of the bigger Jedi Knight series. The title was met with incredible love, so much so that there was even a sequel, making this remake the perfect opportunity to dive right in but with more modernized graphics. After all, alot has changed graphically since the 90s and a title not aging well is to be expected.
Another cool aspect about this project is that it's being helmed by Obsidian's Senior Environment Artist Jason Lewis (though this is not an Obsidian endeavor) in addition to a few other developers from other companies. It's definitely a talented bunch, and his ArtStation portfolio attached to this remake is definitely an impressive addition to this hype.
