Following the Disney and Marvel Games Showcase, a press release confirmed that Empty Clip Studios is working on a remaster of Gargoyles. Featuring updated visuals and controls, it will release for “modern” consoles and PC. A release window and specific consoles weren’t revealed.
Originally developed by Disney Interactive and released by Buena Vista Interactive in 1995 for the Sega Genesis, Gargoyles is a platformer based on the cult classic animated series of the same name. It consists of five levels and features Goliath as the protagonist, seeking to destroy the Eye of Odin. Though planned to release for the Super NES, this version was ultimately cancelled.
Gargoyles received critical praise, though some criticized the controls. Despite this, it’s one of the less known 2D platformers of its time. It should be interesting to see how the remaster further improves the graphics and gameplay. Stay tuned for more details on the same in the coming months.
