The son of the developer that created Morpheus is now doing a remake for today's computers and mobile platforms.

The website is located here.

There is an interactive gallery here.

Check out the update videos here.

Well this is exciting news as Morpheus was one of my favorite games. Not much on the web page except pictures. I can't find anything that states its a real remake which to me would be updated graphics, resolutions and wide screen or just making the old game work on newer systems like using an emulator which would have the original graphics and 4:3 screen size. I am not a Twicher or Tweeter so maybe they explain more there.

You can see what they are doing on the videos here.

Greyfuss, the screens are playable if you click on them.

I've invited him to come stop in, so hopefully he will register and post.

Maybe not with the web-based interface though.
And I thought the graphics looked grainy even back when I played it, so a version with higher resolution graphics would have an advantage.

There was a casual game with a similar story -- Emerald Maiden: Symphony of Dreams -- where you are on what appears to be an elaborate Titanic-like steamer from the early 1900's, and can travel to different worlds. Morpheus and Emerald Maiden had that in common. Morpheus did it better though. Even with the grainy graphics, the places you visited had more atmosphere, and some were genuinely creepy.

Loved this also. I believe that I have the original version on my shelf. Right now I have reinstalled and playingsMOEBIUS,
that I purchased from GOG. This was also a great adventure game, together with Mag's walkthrough to help me.
Unfortunately, nobody is writing a text/image WT anymore, so I really can't play the new games any longer. I can't keep up with the Video walkthroughs.
BTW, I haven't seen Mag here in a long time. I hope she is well and enjoying what I think is retirement?

I don't like video walkthroughs, its like playing the game twice. And you may have to sit through more than one to find the one that applies to where you're stuck. I only did that with one game and that was enough for me.

I think most of us prefer written walkthroughs. But more and more walkthroughs are videos ones rather than written, and sometimes now it's one of the few ways left to get help or to get past a stuck point.

Gameboomers has two written walkthroughs for the original Morpheus...
a four part walkthrough by Linda Shaw from July 1998
(older than Gameboomers I think)

and one by Dan Kennedy from December 2001

Whether these would help with the online version I don't know.
