In a move that’s a little bit baffling. David Cage’s second big game, known as Fahrenheit in Europe and Indigo Prophecy in North America, is getting an HD remaster called Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered. The catch is that this updated version of the game is only coming to PC, Linux, Mac and iOS platforms, so if you’ve got a desktop computer or Apple phone/tablet, you’re good to go on this. Someone decided that console peasants really are peasants so they can all go eat cake instead.
Among the updates to the game like the expected rise in resolution are controller and touch-interface support, as well as the “uncensored” version of the game for North American players. The original version, sporting those PS2-era graphics, had an at-the-time controversial sex scene, of which certain segments were removed for the more delicate sensibilities of North Americans. Now, however, those same players can also enjoy the sensuous ministrations of blocky, polygonal figures to get the same not-hot-and-bothered experience their European peers “enjoyed” all those years ago, so that’s a big win for freedom of speech advocates. Maybe.
The game sells for about $10 in this part of the world, so if you’re one of those people that was always curious about this game, now’s your chance to play it on your computing device of choice, with an Android version in the works. At this time there are no plans for PS4/Xbox One version.
