Total Recall Browser MMO Planned to Coincide With Film Reboot

By Gary Cutlack on at

Here's some news that may trigger a schizoid embolism in the brains of Total Recall fans -- publisher SEE Games has signed a deal to create a "browser-based MMO" around the forthcoming reboot of the sci-fi classic.

So yes, that's two schizoid embolisms for the price of one -- they're remaking Total Recall, and there will be a game of that remake. The game, according to MCV, will be a 3D MMO, designed to work within a web browser, with Sony Pictures executive Mark Caplan saying: "Total Recall is an international phenomenon; we know this well-known property will make a great 3D browser-based game."

We don't share Mark's optimism. The film remake stars Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale, and is scheduled in for a 2012 release. It will not be as good. Nothing can ever be as good as Total Recall. [MCV]
