Back in May the creator of the Mega CD FMV hit Night Trap confirmed that the cult classic would be making a return in the near future. Just mere months later, a Kickstarter has been launched with the aim of re-releasing the 1992 video game on modern platforms under the new name Night Trap ReVamped.
Originally filmed in the late eighties for the scrapped Hasbro NEMO console, the original footage captured for Night Trap was archived for several years until the Sega CD platform arrived. Given that everything captured back then still exists on 35mm film, all the game's creators need to do once more is digitize the footage into a much more crisp and high definition format for today's audience. In an attempt to explain this, several high definition clips of Night Trap have been uploaded to the Kickstarter campaign page, showcasing how good the once heavily compressed FMV title can look.
The team behind Night Trap ReVamped are hoping to raise a massive $330,000 over the next few weeks, providing plenty of rewards for different levels of pledges. At the low end, a $20 donation to the project will secure the PC version of the game expected in April 2015, while more generous offerings appear to provide historical documents, signatures and more.
And if for whatever reason you're sitting on the fence about this one, it's worth noting that plans are in place to secure the rights to other FMV titles from Digital Pictures' back catalogue for re-release, should enough be raised to do so.
