Not a full remake, more an HD re-release
When Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 4 released on Steam last year, developer Krome Studios teased that the previous games would also eventually make their way to the platform. It has now finally, officially announced that the original Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is coming to Steam Early Access in March
The video up top shows some of the nice tweaks being made for the re-release, including a higher resolution, more detailed backgrounds, and the inclusion of anti-aliasing. It doesn’t look too different, but as far as HD re-releases go it definitely isn’t the worst one.
While I am excited to see how this turns out, it does annoy me somewhat that the game is being released for early access. Ty the Tasmanian Tiger was released back in 2002, so the idea of it coming back as an unfinished game 14 whole years after its PS2 and Xbox launch is questionable as hell. This really feels like the sort of thing Krome should’ve just quietly worked on until it was done.
But hey, if you feel like paying for an unfinished port of a 14-year-old game, you can do so when it hits early access in March. The rest of us can just impatiently wait for it to be done.
