Fractalus is a fan-made remake of the classic Lucasfilm game, Rescue on Fractalus!
Rescue on Fractalus! was originally launched on the Atari 8-bit in 1984. The game involves rescuing pilots while avoiding turrets and aliens.
The new game has been written for Windows, Mac OS and Linux by Luke Arnold – a software developer based in Perth Australia.
As well as the chance to relive the game on modern platforms, Fractalus also supports VR on Windows for a true immersive Fractalus experience.
Although the project is unofficial, Arnold has had help from David Fox, Loren Carpenter, and Charlie Kellner from the original Rescue on Fractalus team for in bringing the remake as close to the original as possible.
