This project aims to recreate the levels and playing experience of the LucasArts game Dark Forces using the modern 3D engine found in the game Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy.

Weapons, enemies and models will be re-created aswell as other features of the original game. Soon you'll be playing Dark Forces with gorgeous visuals, brilliant effects and fantastic playability! As Kyle Katarn, mercenary and agent of the Rebel Alliance, infiltrate the secret Imperial base to steal the plans for the Death Star and travel to distant locations as you track down clues to unravel the mystery of the Dark Trooper. Choose wisely from an arsenal of weapons including Bryar Pistol, Imperial Blaster, Thermal Detonator, Imperial Repeater, Fusion Cutter, Anti-personnel Mines, Mortar Gun, Concussion Rifle, and the Dark...

WOW! That's all I gotta say after playing the demo. Absolutely fantastic. Seriously guys! Don't change the way you're making it. It was the same as the original, only better. It even had the old loading screen. Now THAT was a nice touch.

Again, good work.

Good work there chaps. I remember when I first played Dark Forces. I was seven or eight, and I woke up one morning, and my dad was standing there grinning. He said to me "Come look in the Study". I go into the study, and notice that on the computer monitor is the splash screen for Dark Forces. Apparantly my face lit up like 200 gallons of gasoline. Mmmm, nostalgia.

Keep it up! Good to see that it's coming out sometime near christmas.
