Alpha Centauri is one of PC’s finest strategy games, but its dated UI makes revisiting it a bit of a chore. But, thanks to the efforts of artist Keegan Chua, we’ll soon be able to play it with a modern interface inspired by the likes of Civ V and Endless Legend.
“Don’t we all wonder what some older games would look like if they got a fresh coat of paint?” says the project’s website. “That’s the feeling that I got while replaying Alpha Centauri. The gameplay is still there, but the interface is dated. My goal is to completely redesign the look of the game.”
