System Shock 2 Has Been Getting New Patches For Years, Based On The Work Of A Fan Nobody Can Find
System Shock 2 is a beloved classic, a fascinating tangle of shooter, survival horror, and role-playing systems that intermingle and spark with a frightening menace. After developer Looking Glass Studios closed in 2000, the game wound up in ownership limbo. For a time, it languished without updates. Getting it to run on more modern machines increasingly became a massive hassle. Then, in 2012, a fan released an unofficial update that took aim at those issues with almost cyborg-like laser precision. To this day, nobody knows the identity of the fan who released this update.
