For all the pre-release hype it received, the original Killzone failed to truly set the world ablaze. Originally lauded as a potential "Halo Killer," Guerrilla Games' 2004 effort proved to be a technical achievement but received a less than stellar reception amongst critics. I didn't think it was so bad, though, that they needed to hide the game's assets away in a basement.
"By which [Compagner meant], in a shoebox in the cellar of one of [Guerilla's] IT support staff members, without a list of contents of any kind." The pair said that the company used to do things a bit differently back then and that quite a bit of "software archaeology" was involved in the re-creation of Killzone HD. Perhaps the gaming community should all remember this the next time we collectively clamor for a developer to re-release an older game. For whatever reason, it might not be as easy at it sounds.
