System Shock Remastered's zombie enemy attacking the player

[Update]: The System Shock Remake has now arrived, and it's looking quite good so far! The console versions are also on the way, though those will be coming at a later date.

Ever since System Shock Remastered got successfully Kickstarted back in July the estimated release date was set for December, 2017. As you can probably guess from the title, this is no longer case given that the latest Kickstarter Update has brought with it a brand new estimate - the second quarter of 2018. While these sort of delays are certainly to be expected given how early in development System Shock Remastered currently is, I still can't help but feel a tinge of sadness knowing that I won't get to play it for well over a year.

Then again, that is not technically true as System Shock Remastered already has a playable demo, albeit from a very early alpha build. If you're interested in what that might look like, the developers also released an accompanying trailer showcasing their work so far. Check it out:

If you would like to give the demo a try for yourself you can find it as a free download on Steam. Just click on that "Download PC Demo" button to the right and you should be all set up and ready to go. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the demo is freely available to everyone - it doesn't matter if you supported the Kickstarter or not. Have fun, and do keep in mind that this is still an incredibly early alpha build of the game!

And as a final little bonus, here's a rather bizarre-looking piece of concept art the developers posted alongside the recent Kickstarter Update:
