Fan-Made Dino Crisis Remake Videos Released
Mike Sanders / 1 year ago
For reasons that hardly anyone can seem to determine, Capcom seems pretty committed to the fact that their Dino Crisis franchise is as extinct as the antagonists within it. Where there’s a will, however, fans will always come together to try and find a way!
We have been aware (for quite some time now) of a fan-made project to remake the original Dino Crisis game utilising the Unreal Engine 4. Following the release of the first videos from the project, however, we get our first true look at what the team has been cooking up.
Dino Crisis Fan-Made Remake
In terms of ‘fan projects’ what has been shown in the videos looks absolutely amazing. It is clearly still in a very ‘rough’ state (in terms of an overall game) but so far it’s looking more than a little impressive.
There is, however, always the risk that, like a T-Rex bursting through the wall, Capcom may arrive to put an end to this at any moment.
Will it Get Finished?
Often, fan projects such as these get shut down by legal teams before they ever see the light of day. I do sometimes, however, wonder though if they do serve an alternative purpose. How? Well, by making the developers aware that people want to see this happen. Fans (generally) don’t remake games they wouldn’t love to see an official version of.
Would we have seen a Resident Evil 2 remake unless fans bugged the hell out of Capcom to make it? I doubt it.
As such, while we hope that this project may one day be finished, perhaps it might jog Capcom into remembering that they do have this pretty awesome franchise on their books. One that more than deserves the remake treatment! Let’s just hope that we get to see it in one form or another!
