The Dear Esther remake, a indie game I have been following for awhile now, recently made a huge announcement on its development blog. It is getting a full commercial Steam release in the summer of 2011. Along with this announcement comes the launching of the games website.
OK, so time for some back-story. Dear Esther is a 2008 art exploration Half-Life 2 total conversion mod made by Dan Pinchbeck, a game and interactive media teacher at University of Portsmouth, UK. It received almost universal prise for its deep and unique story, music, and beautiful environments. Almost immediately after the release of the original game this remake has been in the works. This remake is a total redoing of the entire game: improving the graphics, redoing the music, and I believe changing all other aspects of the game as well.
I cannot over-stress how much I am looking forward to the game; It simply looks and sounds fantastic.
