I am a little confused about this remake...is this only going to be a browser game or will there be a downloaded version?

Can anyone tell me why? I'm using Firefox and my Google account.
Is there any restriction for European countries?

The best browser is Chrome. At one time I was making Chrome specific builds but I am back to making it more cross platform. That being said I only every develop and test on Chrome. If you are still having problems, can you please send me any errors that are appearing in your javascript console (Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console).

There should be no issues loading from EU, other than the fact that the assets load from Washington USA (so a very long ways away). I have plans to cloudfront all of the assets which will push them to edge cache servers and make the asset loads faster. Until then you just need to be patient.


Thanks for your reply!

While these are technically just a browser packaged as an app, here are some install-able versions of the game: https://soapbubble.itch.io/morpheus Windows, Mac, Linux and Android currently supported. iOS is still under development.

Hi MorpheusDev

Thanks for chiming in but forgive me as I am still a bit more confused after reading the info in the Link.

I am not sure but reading this it seems like you are still working on an actual Remake, Updated version and not just a Browser or a game that just plays on newer systems.

I am currently using the original assets from the released CD which are really bad by today’s standards due to being over compressed in order to fit on 3 CDs. I do have all of the original unmastered assets that I plan on remastering them once I am finished with the game.


Does this mean that there will be a much better version than you have now once you remaster the original assets?

Also, I assume that the first Download in your Link is for Windows (74mb) but what is the last one x86_64.rpm (56mb) ? I have a 64 bit Windows 7 so not sure which to use plus if there will be a better version coming out I might just wait until its all done.

BTW, I do appreciate you hard work in bringing this game back for us.

rpm files are for Linux.

No forgiveness is needed. Feedback is always helpful. Everything is still very much a work in progress. I have a full time day job, plus wife-n-kids so I only ever have a limited time to work on this project. That being said I can try to make the description clearer about what is what!

I am working on a playable remake. I am using HTML / Web as the underlying tech stack. Knowing what I know now I would have chosen differently but at this point I am trying to move forward rather than backwards.

Correct! I have most (not all) of the original assets in uncompressed format. The resolution and frame rate is still low by modern standards but at least everything is clear and crisp without Cinepak compression artifacts.

You will want the Windows link.

You will need 32 bit windows (aren't all XPs 32 bit?). I've used at latest Windows 7 32bit to run Morpheus. You will need to install Quicktime 3. You will need to run as adminstrator and with all compatible options enabled. The game does run but the sound crackles and the cursor flickers.

Thanks MorpheusDev for explaining this so I can understand. I am thrilled to hear that you are actually working on an honest to goodness remake and not just a Browser game or the original updated to run on modern systems. I will wait patiently for the full remake and hope that you will not offer that for free or maybe run a Kickstarter so we can help defer your costs...and to perhaps buy a gift for the wife and kids smile
