Today, developer Beep Industries announced that Voodoo Vince: Remastered is set to launch for Xbox One and PC on April 18, 2017 for $19.99 USD.
For those that don’t know, Voodoo Vince: Remastered is a remaster of Voodoo Vince, the 2003 platforming game developed by Beep Industries and published by Microsoft for the Xbox.
Back in October of 2016, when the remaster was announced, developer Beep Industries revealed that only the remastered version only improves the art assets ands leaves the gameplay untouched. According to the developer, the original released was not eligible for backwards compatibility due to the use of some custom code. Thus, the team started in mid-2016 to bring the game to modern platforms.
Here’s an overview of the game from Beep itself:
If you own a voodoo doll, you get to tap into its strange, mysterious powers. But if you *are* a voodoo doll? That’s when things get really fun.
Join Vince on a wild tear through crawfish-laden swamps, haunted graveyards, and the eccentric French Quarter in search of his missing keeper, Madam Charmaine. Show enemies who’s *really* boss with 30+ voodoo attacks involving falling safes, prickly pushpins, bolts of lightning, and more. Vince may get his butt kicked, but his opponents feel the pain!
Classic puzzle platforming gameplay that has been preserved exactly as it was in the original
Gorgeous high-def visuals: 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio and updated rendering and visual effects
