Grey Skies: A War of the Worlds Story – A Bad Game Redeemed!

Grey Skies: A War of the Worlds Story

Hey there gamers! Remember Grey Skies: A War of the Worlds Story? Yeah, I know, it was universally panned when it came out in November 2020. But guess what? The lead developer has finally emerged from hiding to apologize and make things right with a free remaster!

Nathan Seedhouse, the mastermind behind Steel Arts Software, recently posted an update on Grey Skies’ Steam page, addressing the poor reception with a big twist right off the bat – a remastered version is on its way, and it’s gonna be available for free to everyone who purchased the original (score!).

Now, before we dive into the juicy details, let’s address the elephant in the room. War of the Worlds is in the public domain, so no need to worry about any legal mumbo-jumbo. Phew!

But here’s where it gets interesting. According to Seedhouse, he disappeared for a couple of years due to some personal issues (we all have those, right?). When he finally resurfaced, he was hit with the harsh reality that Grey Skies had flopped and was drowning in negative reviews. Talk about waking up to a nightmare!

But hey, he’s not one to shy away from accepting responsibility. Seedhouse admits that he was oblivious to just how bad the game was until recently. How did he miss all those negative reviews? We may never know!

But wait, there’s hope on the horizon! Seedhouse, armed with fresh eyes and new tricks up his sleeve, is determined to make things right. He believes that underneath all the issues, Grey Skies has the potential to be a decent game. So, he’s taking the initiative to remaster it with the latest technologies and his improved game development skills. Talk about a comeback!

He’s not just brushing off the negative feedback either. Seedhouse is taking it all to heart and promises to address each and every concern raised by players. Clunky movement and frustrating stealth elements? Consider them officially under the developer’s microscope.

In a heartfelt conclusion to his post, Seedhouse hopes that this remaster will rectify the mistakes they made and maybe, just maybe, convince skeptical players to give Grey Skies another shot. Kudos for the effort, good sir!

Oh, and a heads up: the original version of the game will be removed from sale in the future. Some Steam users are already clamoring for a “final sale” as a last hurrah. So if you want to experience the original version before it’s gone, better act fast!

Now, don’t get your hopes up too high just yet. We still don’t know how and when Seedhouse (we have no idea about the rest of the development team) will pull off this mighty task of remastering the entire game. But hey, at least he’s trying, right? It’s a pretty rare thing to see a developer own up to their mistakes and make such an ambitious gesture, albeit a late one.

And believe it or not, this isn’t the first time this year a developer has actually apologized for releasing a bad game. Remember The Lord of the Rings: Gollum? They did the same thing. Seems like apologies are trending in the gaming world!

So, keep an eye out for the Grey Skies remaster, fellow gamers. It may just surprise us all and turn into a hidden gem. And if not, well, at least we can appreciate the effort to make things right. Stay tuned for more updates, and remember to keep gaming with a smile!
