Historically, there have been a few attempts to remake the 1994 Bullfrog classic, Magic Carpet (see this video
for a quick look at the original game).
EA owns the IP, and hinted in this article
that a remake of the game may not be as good regarding today's standards.
Maybe there is some truth here. In particular, I find the whole experience revolved a lot on grinding mana, or holding areas waiting for you balloons to come. On the other hand, you were incarnating a wizard, casting earth-shattering spells while flying over land and sea !
So I ask you, clever designers : How would you remake it ? What would you keep, what would you change ?
On a side note, I'm aware some guy on these forums is developping his own vision
, and I'm curious how it will turn out.
