In its entirety, I mean – the whole game has been remade. “Holy Talos, how long did that take?” you’re probably thinking. Oh, only about SEVEN YEARS.

Drew Rechner is the man behind this insanely ambitious project, and told Kotaku that it even got him a proper job in game development at TimeGate Studios. Well, until they recently closed, anyway, so it’s kind of a happy-sad ending. Somebody over at Beamdog or Overhaul Games should hire this guy.

To play Baldur’s Gate: Reloaded, you’ll need Neverwinter Night 2 plus two expansions, Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir (available as a bundle deal over on GOG). You can download the mod over here, or at least until somebody over at Beamdog or Overhaul Games issues a cease-and-desist because honestly, this looks like a huge copyright infringement controversy in the making.
