Ah, yes. Rockstar Games “Bully” (which originally was released back in 2006). I still remember that game (for all the wrong reasons).
Mainly because of all the fuss and controversy that followed after Bully´s release (the homosexual/bisexual scenes, and the bully theme of the game).
In fact, a lot of Swedish news papers and video game magazines wrote a lot about it back then. And i can´t say that there was less fuss about the Bully remake either (“Bully: Scholarship Edition“, which got released back in 2008 for Wii and 360).
But you know, that was over 7 years ago. So most of the controversy regarding “Bully” has long been forgotten.
But “Bully” is making headlines again, not over controversial in-game content though. But for the fact that a guy called Wesley Arthur, has made a Unreal Engine 4 HD Remake of “Bully Remastered Edition”
Sure, it´s “just” a tech demo/showcase kind of thing. But even so, it´s a really impressive creation. And you can watch Wesley´s Unreal Engine tech demo of “Bully Remastered Edition” down below!
“A next/current-gen homage to one of my all-time favourite games, ‘Bully’ (also known as ‘Canis Canem Edit’) by Rockstar Games.I’ve recreated the boys’ dormitory environment in Unreal 4 to demonstrate my environment art skills as a part of my Masters degree at Sheffield Hallam University. The level closely replicates the original layout in order to maximise its recognizability, but each asset has been carefully redesigned and built from scratch.” – Wesley Arthur
