After years out of circulation. Westwood's classic Bade Runner adventure game is back.

"In 1997 Westwood Studios released a title that won universal praise from gamers and critics all around the world, along with accolades like AIAS’s Adventure Game of the Year award. Set in the same time and universe as the 1982 classic science fiction film by Ridley Scott, Blade Runner video game is now making a big comeback on modern computers.

In the game, you take the role of detective Ray McCoy. Armed with your investigative skills and tools of the Blade Runner trade, you must roam the dark, rainy streets of Los Angeles A.D. 2019 in pursuit of androids gone rogue. Searching for those so-called replicants is a tough nut to crack because they look and behave almost exactly like real people. Faced with growing moral dilemmas, McCoy will soon have to answer questions about his own humanity.
Features:
  • Immerse yourself in the dark, gritty world of Los Angeles 2019, where you become both the hunter and the hunted.
  • Explore over 100 interactive environments including sets from the Ridley Scott’s 1982 movie.
  • Take part in a non-linear story that creates a unique experience every time you play.
  • Interact with over 70 motion-captured characters, all with their own AI and agendas.
  • Witness the climatic noir-style visuals, engulfed in smoke and rain.
  • Recognize the Hollywood cast from the original film including Sean Young, James Hong, Joe Turkel, Brion James, and William Sanderson.
  • Listen to the ambient, multi-track audio and hear the music which includes specially recreated cuts from the original Blade Runner soundtrack.
  • Step into the role of detective Ray McCoy and utilize Blade Runner tools you know from the movie. Use ESPER photo analysis machine to distinguish replicants from humans, and analyze all case clues with the Knowledge Integration Assistant"

Still got my big box copy, but this is a bargain to avoid faff. If you haven't played it you're in for a treat, especially if you're a fan of the original film.
Are you serious? £7 for a 22 year old pc game.......that's as good as this Take my money.
Just to say that ScummVM now supports Blade Runner. "ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files."

How dare they release a game I’ve been holding onto for over 20 years to sell at a later date - that’s my retirement fund ruined then. Better sell those ZX Spectrum ROM packs before somebody remakes those too!

Oh my god, yes!!

This game is brilliant. I have the discs but when I last tried to play it it kept getting stuck on the shooting range.
Brilliant. I used to love this game

Since the sites inception I think.
It's a Christmas miracle.
I am lucky - or old - enough to still have the original CDs! Still going to buy this. Nice surprise from GoG
Never thought I'd see the day! Fantastic game.

I absolutely loved this game back in the day when it came out. Might have to have a look though I don't want to risk spoiling my memories of it!
Bought the discs for this just last week because I thought the rights to it would be in such a mess it'd never be released on GoG. Damn.
I guess it's time to buy it

OMG!...at last.

Heat......"I need ya, GOG. This is a good one, the best yet. I need the old Dos games, I need their magic"
Really enjoyed the atmosphere in this game. They did well to capture it as they did. Getting all those endings though...
I have the DVD version but I’m getting again to avoid all the pain in patching etc. What great news.

13 or so if I remember rightly. And the path begins to branch from the very first scene.

I wish they would make a blade runner tv series.
I'm not too savvy when it comes to PC gaming, but if I buy this then will it be easy to run for a total novice like me?
^^Click and play, GOG are fantastic at making these games run on modern PCs.

Such a beautifully atmospheric game, they got it spot on with this game.

My first pc game back in 97 and Gangsters was the next one lol

I loved gangsters, but if I remember correctly, a couple of 'days' in, or however it progressed, the whole game went kind of belly up. I restarted that game no end of times.

Haha I remember it doing something similar. Just checked the site and they are selling Gangsters for £1.19, I just had to get it with Blade Runner.

Thank you OG for the great post!
Ah man, such a throwback.
Takes me back to the days of Grim Fandango and The Nomad soul.
This game was great (at least I thought it was when I was a kid)

You should be able to copy the appropriate files from the discs and use them with SCUMMVM (which is what this gog.com release is): wiki.scummvm.org/ind…ner

The Android release of ScummVM hasn't been updated since January 2018, so probably not yet.
Bought. Wanted to play this for ages. Thanks OP!

I'm not sure that's true, since the changelog for 2.1.0 talks about improvements for Android, and there's a download for the 2.1.0 APK on the Downloads page. The Google Play version says it was updated on 11 October 2019 - it says 2.0 but that could be an oversight, since 2.1.0 was also released on 11 October 2019.

There's a link to an APK for this version, so I don't see why not. It also seems to me that the Google Play version is likely to be 2.1.0, since it was updated the day this was released.
Oh Westwood Studios how I miss thee.

God damn you EA.

Do you have to install yet another games manager to play this?

No. GoG provides DRM free copies

The only option I have is to "Download with GOG Galaxy"

Is that from your GOG library ? It definitely says it is offered DRM free. GOG have three ways to download. GOG Galaxy is optional, web download and old school installers.

The option is there, but a little hidden. Look for installers and backup or some such phrasing.

Great game btw. Highly recommended.

Weird: the Google Play version I'm seeing was last updated 2 Jan 2018!

Edit: looks like the Google Play version was reverted to 2.0.0 for anyone who didn't have 2.0.0 installed before 2.1.0 was released, due to regressions: forums.scummvm.org/vie…970

Or Blade Runner : Hunt The Pixel as I call it.
I can’t believe it this is an amazing game has different endings, played it more than once, in the 90s
The fact that this is now set in the past makes me feel very old indeed.
