The lights are on
Shadow Moses Project, which brought together Metal Gear Solid fans interested in remaking Metal Gear Solid with modern visuals, is no more.
In a posting on the project's Facebook page, the team wrote the following:
Hi guys!We have an important announcement to make today:We have to cancel the Shadow Moses Project for reasons beyond our control.We would like to thank everyone for the tremendous support we have received.Shadow Moses team.
We wrote about the project back in January. You can find more details, including video footage of completed work, here. Even at the time, its creator, Airam Hernandez, acknowledged the assorted copyright issues related to the project. Additional details about exactly why the project was shut down, etc. are not public.

Our TakeThis is an unfortunate, but not unexpected end of the project. The headline for our first story on the project read, Metal Gear Solid Fan Remake Is Impressive, But Likely Not Long For This World. With the future of Metal Gear Solid up in the air right now, it would have been nice to play this fan remake while waiting to see what happens next.
