And just started replaying DOS version yesterday after a while. Really happy to see this and hoping that what it says on Wikipedia that it will come out for PC is true.

The graphics are so cluttered and messy....and completely contradicts the appeal of the original game.

I'd rather just emulate the original.

I've said this about the new "Strider" game (which I don't care about but I digress...), they really should zoom out the view.  I liked that the original Flashback didn't have any screen scrolling too, it helped take in the atmosphere and admire the well detailed environments.

I wish they were doing Out of this World, the game that came before Flashback. Both were great games.

AWESOME! One of my favorites games of all time. The original Flashback was released when games were all about gameplay and they were actually hard to beat. Nowadays... Anyway, looking forward to playing it!

I can't wait to play it! I loved the original Flash back. I wonder if they will remake Fade to Black?

Not sure if remake will be better than original Flashback. I still have a possibility to play it with many other superb games on Amiga :P

Flashback & Another World are two of my ALL TIME favourite games for which i have very fond memories.

From the Originality of the 'Gun/Shield' device in Another World to the 'Teleport' thingie in Flashback (you throw the device at the required location, and press the button to teleport there), simply ingenious.

Definately be getting this!

This is a flashback of the game flashback and a preview of the remake of flashback. Haha, looks like a great downloadable game, and I am excited to continually see good downloadable games for consoles.

Played the original. Always thought it was an awesome game. Apart from that meltdown mission.... Shudder.


Looks like they've added loads of enemies for no reason though. :/

How many damn times do you need to say the word flashback.

You mean we are getting a remake of quite possibly the most thought provoking and challenging games from the Genesis/SNES era which kept me glued to the tv throughout my childhood??  thank you..  whoever you are that thought this was a good idea..  thank you.   ....  I swear I am not being sarcastic.

I love that a new one is being made, but it seems the nostalgia is gone with the old one for me.  I remember how the original one amazed me.  It was my first time seeing a 2d character have such detailed human movement.  Plus seeing pretty cut scenes on a 2d game at that time was crazy!!!!

Agh! Flashback!!! Awesome! I was so interested in the game, but could not get passed the third level by myself. (I was only a child at the time.) I had to watch my uncles play it and I remember helping them look up bits of the walkthrough in a game magazine. Good memories. I will be very interested to see how this shapes up!

BS. What's the source? I'll believe it when I see it.

The first game I played on the first genesis emulator was flashback. Loved it!

Cute jungle but I prefer my pixels. The original is a master piece. This looks mediocre much like the Monkey Island remakes.

It can probably be a decent game though if they can make Conrad stop sliding around like he's standing on soap.

Whatever this is, it is not Flashback. It's a 2D action game...

Hopefully the orginal version is tucked away in that code somewhere.

Man! Flashback was one of my all time favorite games on the Sega Genesis! I will be all over this remake!!!.... When and if it becomes available for PC.

nVidia already answered the why not. Console developers are going with cheapest bidder. Thus AMD. nVidia refuse the offers made because it wasn't enough money and the company knew it was not profitable with the amount offered.

@Battle_Pants Flashback is better. BTW already was Another World Anniversary Edition on PC with enchanced graphics. So don't cry :D m8.

@eLLiptiX its great to see a remake of a classic like this, i get your feeling totally

@Wolf-5 It still is!! And if you look closely into the kind of precision needed in your movements back then...I think you will realize that there were not many games like it released in this 20 year period.

Hopefully the remake lives up to the memory! Looking forward!!

@helam88 Pfft! The original was on Amiga.

It wasn't ported till a year after. ;)
