Whilst it is brief, and nonetheless in progress, it offers us a fairly very good concept of the style the game will be applying. Command & Conquer: Remastered is nonetheless a 2D game, but the sprites have been massively upgraded so that they no longer appear like jaggy messes on contemporary devices. Jim notes that they did invest some time debating if they ought to stick with 2D or make the remaster in 3D, but they in the end decided to keep as close to the original as probable.
They also noted some intriguing specifics. CG artists Lemon Sky Studios have been brought in to help with the method of recreating the sprites, and have performed so with a lot of care. Jim says that some of the units have a ton of animations to go by way of, and particularly points out that particularly the grenadier had more than 600 frames of animation. In addition, Jim notes that the game will have a “classic/remastered” graphics alternative toggle, saying that at any point you can hit a button and go back to the old sprites that maxed out at a resolution of 320 x 200.
