Valiant Entertainment has partnered with Nightdive Studios to develop a remastered edition of the classic action-adventure video game SHADOW MAN. Therefore, the remastered edition will be coming to Windows PC via the Steam and GOG platforms. This partnership continues Valiant’s expansion into other mediums in addition to publishing.
Dan Mintz, Chairman and CEO of Valiant Entertainment, said:
“As part of our continued growth into the video game industry, we’re happy to bring Valiant fans this immensely popular Shadow Man character as the next title we release. Using this platform allows the Valiant fans to experience and explore the universe creatively.”
The Shadow Man video game was originally developed by Acclaim Studios and published for the PC, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, and Dreamcast console in 1999. This new Remastered version, on the other hand, will be using Nightdive’s proprietary KEX Engine. After all, this engine was used to restore classic video games across all digital platforms including System Shock: Enhanced Edition, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Blood: Fresh Supply, and Forsaken Remastered.
Furthermore, this Remastered version will have the following key features:
- 4K widescreen display
- Dynamic shadow mapping
- Dynamic per-pixel lighting
- Antialiasing, and other post-process effects
- Higher density of particle effects
- Refined art, audio, and assets
- Refined gameplay experience
- Reintroduction of missing content cut from the original game
- HDR Rendering
Lastly, Stephen Kick, CEO at Nightdive Studios explained:
“Our goal with the remaster is to give today’s generation of gamers all the features that they expect from a modern title while preserving the qualities that made Valiant’s iconic character and the original Shadow Man game such memorable classics to begin with.”
