You probably remember the classic disc-throwing game Windjammers, and might want to play it again. Developer DotEmu will give you this chance, as it has just announced it will be remastered for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. A release date has also been announced and, starting with August 29th, you will be able to relive its experience.
Refined graphics and multiplayer in the Windjammers remaster
DotEmu wanted to offer more for the fans, so the announcement didn’t come alone. It has also released a trailer showing some gameplay features of several of the characters. The game comes with six different characters, each with its own strength and weakness. If you want to see the new take DotEmu brought on Windjammers, you will find everything in the trailer.
Since this is a remastered version, it naturally brings with some improvements over the original game. The graphics maintained the same classic style, but they were a bit boosted and refined. Also, the remastered Windjammers can now be played online in multiplayer mode, and has five additional modes and leagues.
DotEmu also launches a line of official merchandise
Last month, the remaster was available in closed beta, and players were able to give their feedback. Then, according to their commentaries, DotEmu was able to modify the game and make it more enjoyable for them. Also, they spotted more bugs and refined the menus and playability of the game. The developer was glad to receive guidance and advice from fans, as well as encouragement.
“Most importantly, your comments confirmed that we’d captured the fun, immersive experience of the original.”
Apart from the Windjammers remaster, the developer also announced the release of a line of official merchandise. Among the items you will be able to purchase, there are hats, pins, or t-shirt in the ‘90s style. What couldn’t have missed from the list is a Windjammers frisbee which, together with all the other items, will be available starting August 29th.
