Fresh3D, a studio made up of several of the original developers of Outcast, has now launched a Kickstarter for Outcast Reboot HD, a remake of the PC classic.

The campaign, which launched only hours ago, is asking for $600,000 in funding to make PC version which promises to contain objects, textures, environments and characters entirely remade from scratch in HD.

Along with the updated visuals and new animations, the developer promises to remove the “annoying story bugs.”

Stretch goals start at 750k for Mac and Linux versions, 950k for DirectX 11 enhancements, 1 Million for implementing VR support, 1.35 Million for a next-gen consoles release and 1.7 Million for adding a new world to the game along with an orchestral soundtrack.

The project has received $41,641, at the time of writing.
