But at that time, there wasn't an easy way to get hold of it without shelling out for a physical copy. That's all changed, because the game has now surfaced on GOG, where it will cost you $5.39/£4.

The remake smashed its Kickstarter target earlier this year before releasing a suitably weird trailer, and now developer Ice-Pick Lodge has put out a gif-heavy progress update and gone in-depth on many of the game's systems, including combat and autopsies.
