This is pretty big and awesome news, Gauntlet the action/RPG game similar in style to games like Diablo is getting a reboot thanks to Warner Bros teaming up with Arrowhead Game Studios who developed Magicka.

This looks absolutely fantastic, it is yet another reason to thank Valve since SteamOS was specifically stated, SteamOS is really going to bring Linux and Gaming into the same sentence for a lot of people.

Arrowhead Game StudioGauntlet will be available on PC via Steam with support for SteamOS and the upcoming Steam Machines.

They will also be at GDC, which is this week, so we should get more info soon!

The trailer tells us it will be in the summer of this year, so the game isn't even far away! Is this a sign that more developers will announce games closer to Steam Machines being released?

It seems more and more bigger developers and publishers and getting in bed with us Linux folk, let's hope they don't get cold feet.

Correct, I did note that it is a reboot in the article.

Reboot/Remake = Same thing

OMG, must not think of Diablo 2, must not install wine...
But seriously will it be fun? Lets wait and see...
So far i have uncontrollable urge to play D2 because of this trailer...

I didn't like the original Gauntlet much back in my NES days, but this looks good and I'll likely buy it.

In the meantime, HammerWatch is excellent! I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something similar.

Really loved that game. Had to LOL on the last tunes of the video

A pitty they go steam-only - I would have bought it for sure.

looks like it will have good Gamepad support

the PS2 had an amazing gauntlet game that I remember me and a few friends sat down and played for a day straight. This comes out for Linux... auto purchase.

Actually it's the opposite.

i.e.

Resident Evil (for Gamecube) or MGS: Twin Snakes are remakes.
Castlevania LoS or Tomb Raider are reboots.
And Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD are simply remastered.

I disagree, to reboot something you are remaking it however much you change/keep the same. They are one and the same in my eyes.

One can argue it applies differently to different games.

The Final Fantasy games you listed have nothing to do with this as they are remasters of the exact same game, that is not a remake or a reboot (hence my earlier point about them being the same).

Anyway, who cares it's such a minor point.

I wasn't referring to Gauntlet. I was saying (or at least I intended to), that a reboot is the opposite of a remake.

Sometime I just can't fight the know-it-all in me
