Baldur's Gate ported to Neverwinter engine...

Holy crap, this dude and his friend spent 7 years porting the original Baldur's Gate to the NWN 2 engine, putting the whole BG game into a 3D setting. It's a mod you can download for NWN 2.

Just when I think I've played BG for the last time (most recently on iPad), something else happens to drag me in for another run :-)

(alas that Minsc is not in the trailer, though almost all the other party members are, like Jaheira, Imoen, etc.)

I imagine 2 would take 10-11 years :-P

But given that this was kinda his ticket to the gaming industry (he got on board with some big company after this came out), I doubt he'd do the next one.

However, I can't help but think someone at MS or Sony or whatever has some ideas about updating old games like this.

Also, some other dudes are in the process of porting BG 2 into the Dragon Age Engine:
