Blood Omnicide is a project to recreate Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain in 3D. The main goal is to save original game feel and provide nearly same gameplay and balance. There will be some improvements & innovations, just because of nature of porting. The most critical ones will be optional in order to not violate the game experience. The second goal is to provide a game SDK that is open for modifications and additions so Omnicide can be used as a base for expansion packs and mods created in the world of Blood Omen.

Wow, didn't expect to get mentioned, but awesome post, this is coming along nicely.

I tell myself I'm not a graphics *****, but I have massive trouble playing Blood Omen, honestly, it's the fact I have a 24'' screen, and it runs at a resolution like 320 x 240...so...it looks incredibly bad.

This will rectify that problem, and I hear you'll also be adding optional RPG like options which excites me.

Speaking of which - any plans to add widescreen options?

It's already added.

Didn't you try the demo?

It supports default 4:3, 16:9, and 16:10. Asking for any other is abit much.

Oh, cool. No, I haven't tried the demo - mostly track the project at this point.
