I can’t speak for Beyond: Two Souls, because I stayed far away from it, but I’m not about to jump on the David Cage “hate train” like everyone seemingly wants to. My time with his games have been interesting, Heavy Rain being at least a little interesting even if I have no intention of going back to it.
And then there is Indigo Prophecy, or Fahrenheit as it is known throughout the rest of the world. I remember playing this game when it first gained Xbox 360 backwards compatibility, and I was hooked from beginning to end. This oddball game was home to an interesting story, better implementation of David Cage’s fascination with QTE’s, and other interesting scenarios that played out differently depending on your input.
If there is one game of his that you should revisit, this is definitely the one, and luckily, it just had an HD remaster announced earlier this week! The game is a decade old, so it already passes the age test. The trailer doesn’t look half bad either!
Other improvements include:
- High-definition Graphics — All of the in-game textures have been meticulously recreated in HD for mobile and desktop.
- Widescreen Support – A true widescreen (not cropped) view strengthens the game’s cinematic qualities while also providing players with a better sense of their surroundings.
- Elegant Touch Controls — An intuitive control scheme has been implemented that works on both phone and tablets, and brings the player closer to the narrative.
- Full Controller Support —Support for MFi hardware controllers on iOS, as well as various popular controllers for desktop. See system requirements for full list of supported controllers.
- Live Graphics Comparison — Players can switch between the updated visuals and the original art assets with the touch of a button.
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered will sell for $9.99 on iOS, PC, Mac and Linux. An Android version is also being developed, but Quantic Dream doesn’t plan on releasing it for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
