Long-lost N64 platformer Glover launches today

Just two months ago, I called the N64 game Glover one of many 3D platformers that “failed in the new millennium.”Now, it looks like my words are back, slapping me with the white anthropomorphic gloves because Glover will be steam and Gog today.

Glover’s return means the game is coming to PC for the second time (the first was in 1998). Developer Piko Interactive managed to get hold of the source code for the original N64 version, which means the game is very much as we remember it, with high-resolution graphics and widescreen support being the most notable improvements. According to Piko, they use N64 code because it’s superior to PC code (the less said about the notoriously bad PS1 version, the better).
