    FPRPG smash hit Borderlands is getting a sequel in the next couple months. However, this hasn't stopped Gearbox from paying their respects to the past, with a demake of the original Borderlands for internet browsers.

    The demake plays like a Smash TV style top-down shooter while still keeping that Borderlands system of loot. You still get a set number of lives and advance through stages in the hopes of getting a high score.

    It's a worthwhile distraction for any fan of retro gaming and/or Borderlands. You can play the game at the link below.



    :arrow: Play the game here!

    Borderlands has to be one of my all-time favorite games. So stoked for Borderlands 2!

    I played this earlier today and I have to say it's pretty well done. Gearbox is such a great company, it's no surprise this had something cool like this done.

    Heh, I love little nods like these. Last one I remember was the Japanese Fallout 3 getting an NES JRPG-styled browser game. So cool~

    I always thought it is not fun, so do not play, you say so I try.

    That was quite amusing although Zero with a 2 way rail cannon is pretty much invincible- can dodge everything and if you are on a stage where you are in a direct line from the spawn points you are laughing.

    I got Borderlands on launch day and played the crap outta it till I beat it, but dropped it shortly after that.
    Regardless of that, Gearbox is awesome. I feel sorry for them picking up Duke Nukem Forever, considering it was a Brittney Spears-caliber trainwreck.
    Can't help but love a company that actually seems to CARE about its fanbase.

    "I always thought to myself "This game doesn't look fun" so I didn't play. You say it's really good, so I'll try it anyway."

    The game's fun with people. Solo it's just kinda boring honestly.

    This, basically. Once you get your hands on a 2 way rail cannon you've pretty much won the game.
