Blade Runner: When Westwood dreamt of electric sheep

[Following last week's awesome news that Nightdive Studios is remastering the 1997 Blade Runner video game, here's Destructoid's previous look at Westwood's underplayed point-and-click classic. Originally published in October 2017.]

In the wake of Denis Villeneuve's astounding sequel, Blade Runner 2049, people are once again speaking in excited tones about the potential for a new Blade Runner video game experience.

I remember back around 2010, when some mysterious art was leaked for an alleged "in the works" game based on Ridley Scott's original sci-fi classic. Sadly though, nothing came of this. Thus, fans got sad and went back to their hopes and dreams of unicorns, wishing that a dedicated and faithful recreation of Los Angeles 2019 would one day surface.

But, this has already happened, albeit twenty long years ago.
