Don't know if it'll be the same or not in the game, but if it is there won't be much of a story either. Just a heads up
He can't see my post and he still hasn't read the interview from the developer. hahaha

@louiedog: As quoted by the developer in reply to a 'should i play original or remake'.

I'd wait if you can - although the game has evolved, the central spine of the story is the same (of course), and the overall asset quality will be much higher.... Dan

Since this is a story centric game, wait for the remake as graphics matter the most when it comes to immersion and experience of a story. The original was beautiful but the graphics held the experience back.

@Peter: Over on moddb someone asked why the hell is the game not a movie then. Someone said, well wouldn't that defeat the purpose of immersion? Having the control over a character is more immersive than staring at a screen. The experiences are two completely different things and people just don't realize that the INTERACTION is what makes it a game and different from a non-interactive movie.

EDIT: Aw damn, I thought Home was released and that I can play it.
