All Articles: Night Trap
OK, this is unexpected…
The original team behind Night Trap, the full-motion video horror title that indirectly lead to the creation of the ESRB, wants to bring a high-definition remake of the game to the PC, Mac, PS3, and Xbox 360. Naturally, the developers (Director James Riley, Co-Designer Rob Fulop, Technical Director Mark Klein, and Executive Producer Tom Zito) have turned to Kickstarter to fund this bizarre endeavor.
The quartet is seeking $330,000 to “revamp” the Sega CD classic, and I use that term loosely, for modern machines. As opposed to the heavily compressed video seen in the original, the developers want to go back to the original 35mm film and create the definitive version of Night Trap. For those who don’t know, the game put players in control of a security team that is monitoring a sorority slumber party. But their job isn’t to keep out panty raiders, they’re protecting the young women from a gang of bloodthirsty vampires. For all the controversy connected to it, Night Trap seems rather tame by 2014 standards… as a game or as a movie. And the developers themselves always envisioned the game as something a little bit scary, but in PG-13 range.
If Riley and his compatriots reach their goal, they expect to release their Night Trap remake sometime next Spring. I don’t know if it’s got the name recognition to pull it off, but the developers have revealed that if they pull in enough money, they will buy up the rights to other FMV games originally published by Digital Pictures and begin work on Night Trap II.
