It seems that 2K Games and Gearbox Software have launched a demake of their hugely popular first-person shooter, Borderlands.
'The Border Lands' is a 16-bit Lo-Fi game which offers a tantalizing glimpse into the origins of many elements still present in today's hit Borderlands franchise. It may not have 87 bazillion guns, or dynamic online co-op but it can also be played online for free at www.wubwub.eu.
Gearbox Software and 2K Games teamed up with the BAFTA-winning creative agency, Ralph, to produce the game. The Border Lands is designed with a late 1980's gaming theme in mind and to coincide with the launch, a retro style 'video review' is presented below:
Available in North America on September 18th 2012, Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed four-player cooperative shooter-looter that combined intense first-person mayhem with role-playing gameplay. Borderlands 2 features all-new characters; skills; imaginative, diverse new environments with unique missions and enemies; and more exciting and fun weapons, equipment and loot than ever before.
