The original game Hardwar was a British game released in 1998. It is a futurist flying game based on Saturn’s moon, Titan. In the game you could fly to different buildings, trade, fight and do missions. It was kind of like Elite but with land.
Soon after releasing the game, the company that produced it went bankrupt. 6 Years after that I was lucky enough to get in contact with one of the original game makers. We discussed the possibility of open sourcing the code because the game had aged and there were many bugs with it. We came to the conclusion after lots of contacting of various people that it would be impossible to legally open source the game.
It was around this time that I decided to start working on a remake of the game. It is a really great game that didn’t deserve to die the way it did.
In the end I decided to call my remake game Hardwar as well. Although this maybe confusing calling the remake the exact same name as the old game my reasoning for it is to bring the old fans that enjoyed the old game together. If they Google search “Hardwar” hopefully they’ll find my project and join in the effort.
