Game InformationEdit

Flashback is a science fiction platform video game remake of the original 1992 Flashback. The game developed by the original game designer, Paul Cuisset, with his studio, VectorCell, and published by Ubisoft. The game was released on August 21, 2013 on Xbox Live Arcade and will release on PlayStation Network in Q3 2013.

VectorCell approached Ubisoft about remaking the original 1992 Flashback due to fan interest. Ubisoft's Guillaume Da Costa Vieira said that the company's employees were fans of the game and "jumped at the opportunity". They sought to recreate the game's "original spirit" while attempting to improve the game. Paul Cuisset, the original Flashback team lead, directed the remake. Five members from the original Delphine Software Flashback team joined him. Paul Cuisset had acquired the license for the game and was waiting for the right time to start the project. The game was first unveiled April 10, 2013 in Germany.

The development team considered the remake an expansion of the original. Improvements include features from both player feedback and improved technologies since 1992, e.g., a new skill system that trades points for skill improvements and character customization. The story has also been expanded and the graphics updated.The new graphics put the game in 2.5D from the original rotoscoped 2D. The story adds new dialogue, plot twists, and voice acting.
