Eschalon Book I: Platinum Edition Possible After Book III
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

A recent developer post on the official Basilisk Games forums revealed that the original Eschalon: Book I might someday be re-released as a Platinum Edition with added dungeons, enhancements, and game improvements. Such a title would not see release until after the successful completion of the Eschalon trilogy with the debut of Book III.

I don't want to jump too far ahead of our plans, but we've tossed around the idea of re-releasing Book 1 as a "Platinum Edition" complete with a few more dungeons, a few game enhancements, and of course any lingering bugs fixed. This would not happen until after we wrap up work on Book 3, so we're talking probably a few years from now. The reasoning behind this is that it is likely Book 1 may not function properly on future versions of Windows, MacOS or Linux. Patching old software can only go so far....at some point, we'll need to rework the original code to function on current (future) systems.

All this hinges on how successful Book 2 is, and then of course Book 3. If we make it that far and fans want to see an "Updated Enhanced Edition" of Book 1, we'll be happy to do it.
