Hogs of War Remake
Hi We are currently looking at the possibility of developing an official "Hogs of War" remake, and are thinking of creating a KIckstarter project to part fund this. Would this be something that you as a fan of" Hogs of War" would be willing to support? We are just wanting to see what the level of interest will be.

Im in!
Oh, sadly too much 3d Worms (still worse than HoW). Im dont think that be successful. If im right, original HoW not to be so popular on PC, as Worms (Infogrames didnt try that). And same as Worms on PS. Its like indie game, but we already have Team17 dev team.

Im prefer PC, but must say that, probably, PS4\X1\PSVita(*)\Switch platforms be more perspective for HoW2. Still not so much.

*Vita already have PS Classics version. And this is contestant too.

And what about IP property? Do Urbanscan and\or Alternative Software have right to release Hogs of War 2 (and not other pigs game) on PC? And on consoles?
What about PS Store version? Sony sell it, and i do not think they allow you to release new one. Even considering the fact that they do not have IP. They sell a lot PS Classic games as publisher - and some wrong advertise as PS only - but never be publisher for Retail release. And still sell from defunct publishers, it look like. Wikipedia say that only few games be removed from NA Store at all time (much more in EU).

Original HoW release - it a miracle. Where\fromwho Urbanscan get it? And who is Alternative Software? Arent Urbanscan still IP owner, as both GOG and Steam store page copyright section says?

This would be joint project with Alternative Software. and Urbanscan who hold the IP.

HoW2 no, but HoW Remake yes!

So I would definitely donate something that can be developed! You definitely have my support as Hogs of War Fan. A remake for the PC with even more options would be sensational! Currently there is already a remake for Hogs of War or it is in planning and is called OpenHOW. But if you try to conjure something and of course in German if it is possible, many would donate for your project!

Please do it!

You can find more information about "OpenHOW" here:

It would be incredible 😀😀👌

YES! Do it.

A modern version would be VERY much appreciated!

Hell I'll buy this now just to show support for simply having the idea of doing a remake (I still have the PS1 version so don't really need it). - bought.

If you can keep the original Rik Mayall dialogue, even better.

Hurry up and take my money already... I have personally looked into buying the IP to do something with it myself... PLEASE take my money and do it.

That would be an excellent idea! Perhaps it might build the community back up again!

OH MY GOD YES.

If you would start Kickstarter for Hogs of War Remake, it would be my first time paying money there.

This game IS my childhood.
