Rockstar's mischievous scholastic satire Bully (or Canis Canem Edit, as it was originally called upon its European release) came out in 2006 and many have clamoured for a remake to it. It's unclear if that will ever happen, but graphic design student Wesley Arthur has given us some idea of how that might look by painstakingly recreating its boy's dormitory in Unreal Engine 4.
"The level closely replicates the original layout in order to maximise its recognisability, but each asset has been carefully redesigned and built from scratch," Arthur said in the notes accompanying a YouTube video demonstrating his work.
Arthur is even creating an art book detailing the techniques he used to create this impressive contemporary take on Rockstar's eight year old adventure. Here's an excerpt below:
Now if one college student can manage all this, just think how impressive it would look should Rockstar's massive army of devs tackle a sequel - something the studio has hinted that it may create at some point in the future.
Bully: Scholarship Edition is currently one of the games being given away with pre-orders of Grand Theft Auto 5's recently delayed PC port.
