It looks like a Geneforge remake is on its way going by a post from Spiderweb Software on their Facebook page.

If you're unfamiliar with Spiderweb Software, they're the folks behind the RPG Queen's Wish: The Conqueror that is very much in the style of Geneforge. This indie RPG is pretty darn good (and also the product of a successful Kickstarter), and now it seems that Spiderweb is aiming towards bringing back a classic.

 

Let's kick things off by taking a look at some screenshots from the classic Geneforge so you can get an idea of what the original games looked like:

Now, it seems like a remake (or perhaps a sequel?) may well be on the way according to a Facebook post from Spiderweb Software.

"We are scrambling to get everything together for our new Kickstarter," stated the Facebook post. "Coding furiously to get enough game together for a video. Writing. Screenshots. Lots of worrying. Look for it in February!"

 
 

When Can You Get the Geneforge Remake?

The big question indie RPG fans will be asking is when they'll actually be able to get this game. Well, the original Queen's Wish: The Conqueror Kickstarter campaign ended in late June 2018 and the game was launched on Steam on September 11, 2019. That's a wait of about 15 months, so you can probably expect a roughly similar timeline for the Geneforge remake.

It should be noted that Spiderweb Software hasn't gone into detail about what exactly they're going to be doing in terms of programming. Are they remaking just one of the games? All of them? Or is this going to be some kind of sequel?

Whatever the case may be, you can get the original games on Steam if you don't want to wait, or you can grab them DRM-free on GOG (and, frankly, at a much better price). Keep your eyes open for this upcoming Kickstarter campaign, whatever it may be.

Do you think there will be a Geneforge remake or a brand-new game in the franchise? What's your favorite game in the series? Let us know in the comments below!
