tfishell: SCPM at least was working on that. I don't know what the latest is (presumably it's not a great outlook :-/) but you can look over some of the posts:

I'm reasonably confident the rights are with Tatem Games / Igor Karev. Source: some copies of legal documents in my possession. I let GOG know of this some months ago, so maybe it's in the works. But, I think Tatem just aren't interested in re-releasing the game, from whatever interviews and posts of theirs that I've read. Anyone and everyone who wants the game here is gonna need to vote on the wishlist and try contacting them.

Ok, thanks for the info.

If I had a buttload of extra cash I'd see if they wanted to sell it. Then I could work on producing a remake!

Sadly, I am not Notch :P

You don't need to own the rights to the original to produce a remake, you would just need to come to some kind of arrangement with the rightsholder of the IP, if you're serious about this. I would imagine it would be similar to how the Wacky Wheels remake is being handled.

I'm... actually slightly serious about it. Although it's certainly not something I could attempt at the moment. It's something I might attempt in the future when I have the resources/connections/confidence to handle putting a team together and dealing with all the "big boys" game development stuff.

It's just one of those thoughts that comes while you're driving. I suddenly realized "hey, you know... there's technically nothing stopping me from trying this. Maybe I'll just see who has the rights..." It was kind of at the same time I started thinking about how cool it would be to create a publisher to help out unknown indie devs... when or if I ever have enough money and know-how to even consider such a thing.

I definitely understand those sentiments. :)
