It's unofficial, so it will be shut down.

What's the point? Might as well just patch the Saturn or PS1 version.

Yes, that is odd. Perhaps it's something akin to the Linux phenomenon of trying to install Linux on everything, except in reverse. (Getting everything else to run on the Dreamcast.)

"enhanced visuals"?
Looks like a filter and some color correction.
Not sure if I like the new looks, the old one had so many details that are probably blurred out by the filter.

You'd have to use a burned copy that already has the patch embedded in it, ala-

Half of the screenshots literally just look like they plastered an "hq2x" filter over the original Sega CD version

You have to look past the filter... LOOK AT THOSE AMAZING LENS FLARES!

Yeah, this is kind of worthless unless they actually get higher rez versions of the original art, or actually re-do it.

Just blowing up the picture and blurring it out to look "anime" like is pretty lame. There could be other additions that might be nice... but I don't think the graphical "overhaul" done is doing it any favors.

they already said the art style's not final, and that they're aware its awful

also that they're using stuff from both sega-cd & PCE versions too

..why?

HD remake on modern platforms with re-drawn art or no care.

Instead of "remaking" this on Dreamcast they should have gone for an open source Snatcher/Policenauts engine for Windows,
then when that is finished you can start attracting 3D modelers who could potentially redo all the art in glorious HD.

Then when that is finished you can port it to whatever console you want.

Just focusing on the Dreamcast is too limiting.

Or someone could make a SMS version now that there's a simple Twine-to-SMS converter :P

I find the art in the PS1 and Saturn versions worse than PC Engine tbh.

I don't like the redesigns

only played and beat the sega cd merican version. I am playing through an english msx version but the shooting scenes ARE TOUGH AS NAILS.

I was playing the msx version but its quite tedious and yes the shooting is much harder,i do think it captures the cyber punk feel better than the sega cd though
