Nightdive Studios launches new podcast, first episode centering on The Thing: Remastered

Fans looking to learn more about the upcoming remaster of the 2002’s The Thing, are gonna want to check out Nightdive’s new podcast.

That’s The Thing

A name that most video game fans probably know at this point, Nightdive Studios has made quite a name for itself over the last few years. That seemingly infinite amount of positive buzz comes from the recent full-remake of the classic FPS System Shock, but mainly hails from the company’s awesome list of remasters.

Nightdive has been behind modern ‘remasterings’ of games like Turok, Doom 64, and Powerslave, among others. If you were paying attention last week too, the retro-minded company also revealed its next title, with Computer Artworks’ 2002 release, The Thing.

Based on the iconic horror film, and released for the Xbox, PS2, and PC, The Thing was essentially a sequel, picking up where the movie’s action left off with a whole new cast. Now that game is coming back around, ready for a new generation of fans. And naturally, that means Nightdive will be wrinkling its magic and bumping things up.

While you might’ve known about The Thing though, you might not know that Nightdive is also launching a new podcast. Nightdive Studios’ Deep Dive podcast will be landing on YouTube every other Monday, and will be hosted by Dimitris Giannakis (from the Modern Vintage Gamer YouTube channel), along with co-hosts and Nightdive staffers Morgan Shaver and Locke Vincent.

Expect interviews, behind-the-scenes content, and maybe even a giveaway or two. Interested? Well, good, because we’ve got episode one all cued up and ready to roll in the player below. Enjoy.

The Thing: Remastered is a faithful restoration of the cult-classic 2002 third-person survival horror shooter game inspired by Universal Pictures’ genre-defining 1982 film, The Thing. Nightdive Studios has upgraded this horrifying classic for the modern era through its proprietary KEX Engine for play on current-generation gaming devices up to a 4K resolution at 120FPS. Improvements to character models, textures, and animations have been hand-crafted by Nightdive Studios, with the implementation of advanced 3D rendering for updated lighting and atmospheric effects — for a suspenseful and disgustingly detailed remaster that reanimates the thrilling game for modern audiences.
