I played an hour of the original GK1 to refresh my memory, and then I played an hour of the 2014 edition. Guess what…

....and…..? I anticipated this game so much that I bought it on pre-order but alas haven’t got around to playing it yet so was looking forward to your impressions of it Karlok?  Laughing

I quite liked the GK remake.
Of course I didn’t make the mistake of playing as much as a single minute of the original first, as I wanted to enjoy it for what it is, instead of ending up comparing it to the original.

Sorry Diego.  Embarassed I couldn’t keep up and eventually dropped out. I read all the comments though. Problem is that I find myself losing interest in replays in general, and although Toonstruck is certainly a good game, I got a little bored after a while. Maybe I remembered too much…

The awful, awful animations turned me off. Just like they did in Moebius. What is the point of a makeover if you can’t get the animations right? The old voiceacting is way better, the new voices sound like a parody of the old ones. IMO. But if I wanted to replay the game, I’d go for the new version with new extra lines and puzzles.

I couldn’t stop laughing at wico’s animation as I guessed that he’d sussed out your thought to the game Karlok! Thanks for your reply BTW! Let’s forget about Moebius as it’s a modern stand-alone game on a small budget but if GK1 is presented similarly I can see the problem! 
I played all of the GK games in reverse order with Sins of the Father quite a few years later - I struggled with all of the controls & played in a small window (I tried full-screen but no! -too pixellated!)  which I wasn’t used to but ended up playing this amazing game to conclusion & not being able to decide whether it was better than GK2 or not!! 
I’m sure that I will enjoy the re-make but am also not expecting to experience the same charm as the original!

Me too. And by “charm” I mean the nasty bug that prevented the futher gameplay in Day 6, because I didn’t do something in Day 1 (and charming programmers let me play further despite of the fact, knowing I’d be biting my ass for not doing what I was supposed to do ).
I was so outraged (after ten days of trying everything possible and discovering -via walkthrough- what had gone wrong) that I never finished the bloody charming thing.
