We are Doney den Ouden and Yoram Boer, two students from The Netherlands. Almost ten years ago, the original James Bond 007: Nightfire was released for the Xbox, PlayStation 2 and GameCube. Now, ten years later, the game still delivers in terms of gameplay and fun. In our opinion, it’s even more fun than today’s big blockbusters like Call of Duty and Battlefield. That’s why we think it deserves a remake.
The previous version of this site was an appeal to Activision, asking them to remake this game using our ideas. Hundreds of people sent in their stories and memories of this game to support us, but we got no response. We want this remake to happen, so we are taking the matters in our own hands: we are going to build the remake as a fan project. To make this possible, we need YOUR support!
We are gathering a team of hobbyists and enthusiasts who are willing to spent a few hours a week to work on what will — in our eyes — be the perfect remake of Nightfire. This means that we need artists, programmers, level designers, modelers, animators; anyone needed to build a great indie/arcade game. The remake will be made with the Unreal Engine, meaning that the game will be available for Mac and PC. If you have experience with UDK, or if you think you can help us in any way, do not hesitate to contact us
We encourage you to spread the word about our project as much as possible, so that our chances of finding suitable people for our project increase. To follow our project updates, follow us on Twitter

Below are some of our plans. Please note that everything is subject to change.
Obviously the most one of the most important things of a remake. We will use the newest version of Unreal Engine 3.
We will create a more modern menu system, while keeping the atmosphere of the original menu.
The amazing level music and soundtrack (Nearly Civilized by Esthero), as well as sound effects and other audio will remain untouched.
Gameplay will stay the same as much as possible. We might add the modern Aim Down Sights system.
We loved cheats in the original game, so we will bring those back, along with some of our own additions :)
We'll add an (ingame) achievement system to both challenge you and to extend replay value.
The player will play as Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan, but we might add a cheat to let you change that ;-)
In our eyes the (console version of the) singleplayer was perfect, so it does not need any additions.
Play against other players worldwide using a matchmaking system.
Earn XP, level up, unlock weapon and character skins and show the world how pro you are.
Old classics will return. New classics will be forged. Did anyone say Golden Gun?
We'll add some more campaign-based maps to multiplayer mode.
Play as Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, and some of the new villains in the Bond universe.
Customize the game, with the addition of weather options.
