Default Stasis Labs - Games Re-Imagined as Isometric

May 19th, 2014, 14:04
The developers of the funded game Stasis have created a few screenshots of what a few released games might have looked as 2D isometric RPGs.

The games include Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Assaassin's Creed 4, Crusader: No Remorse, and Blade Runner. Just visit the following link for the images.

Bioshock

This has to be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Ehm…

Wouldn't it be easier to adjust the camera angle in whatever engine?

Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Assaassin's Creed 4, Crusader: No Remorse, and Blade Runner
Meh.

However, if this game was real, I'd play it instantly:

Looks better than this one:

Wasn't Crusader: No Remorse already isometric?

That was my thought as well.

Personally, I like to imagine how isometric games would look in first-person.

The difference is probably word "RPG". They show how isometric action would look like as isometric RPG.

This

Actually I love the ability in a RTS game to switch into a 3rd or 1st person perspective ala Spellforce or Savage not the other way around. I think Dragon Age got the camera right with different options available.

I agree Aubrielle.

Now as for the rest of you.

I don't have a problem with any of the images as they are just mock-ups of what the developer thinks they should look like. So I'll be moving on now as I said my opinion.

It was a joke.
But I can answer that term "RPG" is very flexible in game industry nowadays, right? Maybe one day all flashy and pretty games will be called RPGs.

Very cool! I would play (and pay for) an isometric Bioshock. Granted, it would need some re-design in the gameplay department, of course, but the idea of an isometric Bioshock RPG is tantalizing.

To say nothing of a new Blade Runner game - any game. Isometric, first person, third person, shooter, RPG, adventure, no matter.

I would kill for a new Crusader (that is as good as the originals), it's one of my all time favorites.
