The Repossessor, a RoN reconstruction
« on: 06 Oct 2007, 03:00 »
You play the role of Death, the Grim Reaper, who has come to Reality to reclaim the soul of Michael Gower. Who's that? Michael Gower is better known as the zombie who is currently running for mayor of Reality.



This is a reconstruction of the original "The Repossessor".  The purpose of this reconstruction was to update the game to make it playable on more recent versions of Windows and to improve as many visual aspects of the game as possible.

Many thanks to Dave Gilbert, the author of "The Repossessor", for his permission and encouragement.

The game can be downloaded from this PAGE.

Download doesn't work!?
Firefox loads and loads, but the server doesn't respond, as it seems.
Anyway, a polished-up version is a very nice idea. :)
Still, I think that this Death sprite is just ugly.
I prefer the old, painted over Davy one.

Surely I can't be the only one who likes the new Death?

Anyways, this is a very nicely done remake - faithful to the original but taking advantage of all the new resources RON now has.

Question: what was the level of involvement, and could others replicate it for the other older games such as Lunchtime and Postman?

Regarding the question about involvement:

Dave was quite helpful with his encouragement of the remake, and with his ability to remember things about the original game.

Well, I could always whip off an email to Yahtzee asking for permission about Lunchtime... but I doubt if I'll get anywhere besides a 'Do what you want, I don't give a toss'.
