Konami almost let a PC remake of PT slip by
We almost acquired PT on PC. On the eleventh hour, Konami swooped in and canned it. C’est la vie.
Qimsar, a 17-year-old pupil, had been engaged on a “100 p.c playable and 100 p.c recreation correct” remake of PT. He virtually completed. Simply earlier than an replace that may’ve applied the final animations, Konami known as him to stop and desist the mission.
In a submit on Sport Jolt, Qimsar describes the decision. He says that the Konami consultant was very apologetic, however that this PT remake needed to be pulled for authorized causes. The Konami rep additionally stated that the mission had been very fashionable across the workplace. Not less than this appears much less coldhearted than the standard stop and desist message.
For what it is value, Qimsar is inspired by the end result. Within the short-term, Konami’s sending over some merchandise and video games. However, greater image, it seems as if Konami will supply him an internship. “It hasn’t been made tremendous official or something, however a freakin’ internship for me with Konami by which I might do stuff with Konami US, EU, and Japan,” he says. “Internships have a tendency to show into jobs pretty typically and for a 17-year previous who is not even a senior in highschool simply but, to get this for the very first recreation mission that he is ever labored on … that is fairly good.”
It seemingly labored out for Qimsar. It, nonetheless, didn’t work out for everybody who simply needs to play PT however did not obtain it to their PS4 4 years in the past. Perhaps some day (however most likely not).
