    Looks like it could be a fun game. I might get it if the price is right.

    The 90's is an era in gaming very dear to me. I long for 16-bit games like (Ocean's) Addam's Family, (GraftGold's) Fire & Ice, and Cannon Fodder to be remade on XBLA. It's great to see that a developer from that time is still going, and although I don't remember this game (at least, I never played it), I'm sure this is going to be a day-one purchase for many people that do have fond memories.

    What is it with the negativity on here! Saw it with pac-man yesterday and now this, just filled with comments on how bad this looks. Not everything is going to be triple a, there is nothing wrong with some mediocre games. To me this looks half decent, but wait until you get to play it one day before instantly dismissing it off. Must be horrible to read for anybody who is working on that game, all the negative vibes this community gives off. Makes my blood boil.

    Not supposed to be a AAA title, just a remake of a 20 year old game. It won't be a $60 retail game and who knows, these old platformers are pretty fun usually.

    Loved the original Putty on my Amiga, this could be really good too.

    I'd also love to see hd remakes of the original Lemmings, Cannon Fodder and The Settlers please.

    Definitely agree with the 3 on your wishlist, and obviously Desert / Jungle Strike

    OT: I dont understand why people are saying it looks so bad, no worse than any other 2D side scroller. Will play the demo when one is released

    This is pure nostalgia for me. Fond memories of the original game, which came bundled with my Amiga 600 as part of 'The Wild, The Weird & The Wicked' package that included Pushover, Grand Prix and Deluxe Paint 3. Most of what I remember of Putty is getting stuck at the third or fourth level and just spending ages stretching and melting and inflating with no real purpose. Hours of pointless fun.

    Lemmings was already remade in native 1080p on PS3 many years ago.
    I bought it in 2007 i think, so its old now.
    Super Stardust was also remade from Amiga version to PS3 in native 1080p.

    Cannon Fodder 3 was released awhile ago, and Settlers 2 HD is out.

    Without "mediocre" games (subjectivity ftw) there would be no AAA. And there are lots of people who rather play this and avoid CoD, Tomb Raider, BioShock blabla.
    Also, the publisher and developers of "mediocre" games can be happy with good sales whereas your beloved AAA titles struggle to make as much money as has been put into them ($100m for development + plenty of millions for senseless advertisement). And then you people cry about high retail prices, online passes, DLC and microtransactions.

    I'm pretty sure I will get this game.
