Are you a huge Metal Gear fan? Itching to get your hands on the game for one more run-through for old time's sake? What if I told you a group of independent modders had Konami's blessing to reboot the very first Metal Gear game from 1987 and release it completely free to the public? Brace yourself, 'cause I'm telling you now. It's happening. And you can be a part of it!

The group of modders, known as Outer Heaven, contacted Konami before beginning work on this ambitious project, and Konami responded with a hearty blessing and approval, likely much to their surprise. They'll be free to release the final product for free, so long as they don't use any copyrighted material for marketing or promotion.

Outer Heaven is putting out a call to anyone with game design talents or knowledge of C++, so if that's you, send out an email to outerheavendev@gmail.com. Personally, I can't wait to see what comes of this -- though, it is a bit of a surprising development. I just can't believe that it's going to be free.
