Video Games Reborn

Remade or remastered, cutting-edge nostalgia for the win.

You can explore anywhere, unfettered, and in real time. Pick your own path through the forest on Myst Island. As a tribute to Myst, the original images pop up in Classic mode, allowing gamers to see the difference, and be hit by the nostalgic vibe. Good thing that you won’t need a CD-ROM drive to play this.


SimCity: Complete Edition

Available on: Windows, Macintosh
Original release: 1989
Original platform: Amiga

From the game which sparked off a new genre, comes SimCity where you start by developing a city from a patch of undeveloped land. The city is populated by “Sims”, simulated persons, who live in the city created by the player.

Using a new engine called GlassBox that allows for more detailed simulation than previous games, visual effects such as traffic, economic troubles, and pollution will be more obvious. Two new features are: multiplayer and finite resources. This edition includes SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow expansion pack, and the Amusement Park, Airship, French, British and German City sets.
