    No, since as he will repeatedly tell you, Jeff Vogel is old.

    They say you get wiser as you get older. With game developers, there seems to be an inverse correlation: the older they get, the stupider they are.

    Well, a remaster is not the same as a remake, although the cool ideas quote suggests its going to be the latter. As long as he doesn't pull a Beamdog and remove the originals then IMHO he can go on remastering as long as he wants, but unless he comes up with fresh ideas he's on a ride to diminishing returns.

    At least with Geneforge it would only be the first remake.

    It's something about the air around Puget Sound that lends itself to revisiting the same work. The Tarn brothers have been working on the same game for many years now, while Vogel continually updates his previous work, and Microsoft chugs along making new versions of Office and Windows and Minecraft…

    I wonder if Vogel has a schedule for what will be working on for the rest of his life.

    My false history would hold up better if Harebrained were working on another iteration of Shadowrun, instead of Battletech, but I guess neither of those is anything new, anyway.

    Why would I buy this if I can get the next reboot in 2026 with 3D graphics!

    Probably not finished it, the avernum end game is often filled with hp bloated enemies , it gets tiresome after a while.
