Gold Rush Remake Is In Development

Gold Rush, one of the last official adventure games created on Sierra's AGI engine, developed by the MacNeill bros. and published by Sierra, is receiving a high definition remake, courtesy of Sunlight Games.

The adventure follows a man named Jerrod who travels from New York to California in search of gold in 1848, at the cusp of the California Gold Rush. The game had three seperate routes to take to get to California, and the remake will be faithful to the original, with all three routes in-tact, and containing the original storyline. The remake will also allow you to optionally use a verb parser to control the game along with point and click for movement, or through complete point and click control. It is scheduled to be released some time from late 2014 to 2015, but if you'd rather not wait to play the remake, the original game will be re-released for PC and iOS later this spring.
