Great interview, Aaron. These screenshots look great: apparently New San Francisco has made considerable progress in cleaning up "Barney Rubble".

Great interview! Hey - they should consider remastering the original games, bringing them up-to-date with modern PC/gaming technology. Great way to revitalize interest in the whole franchise.

@Steve Douglas My favorite is that last one - I'm hoping that's Rook's basement, and Tex learns the horrible truth - that Rook is a closet magician-wannabe.

@cornath As much as I like that idea, it's extremely unlikely. I seem to recall hearing that the Big Finish gang did not have the masters for the videos they shot, so any update/remaster would still have the videos at low detail, low resolution, and I guess Big Finish doesn't want to half-ass anything. The flipside of that is that they could probably get away with re-shooting all the videos with new actors - hell, Overseer is a retelling of Mean Streets, so why not a retelling of Under A Killing Moon or The Pandora Directive? But clearly, that's not a priority at the moment. In the meantime, I've heard of no fan projects of the sort you describe.
