A fan-made remake of the original Metal Gear was in development as a 2.5D PC stealth shooter using the Source engine, and was to be released via Steam. David Hayter and Paul Eiding were attached to the project, with Hayter voicing a young Solid Snake and Eiding reprising his role as Colonel Campbell. It was officially cancelled in 2014 after the developer released their first official trailer, which depicted Portable Ops styled cutscenes.
As revealed in the trailer, the player would have the choice to take out guards non-lethally with a tranquilizer gun or the lethally with a pistol or CQB.

Behind the scenes
Although the game was planned as a remake of the original Metal Gear, it was set to feature Roy Campbell despite his first in-game appearance being in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
The project was halted twice due to funding problems. Originally, the remake was given Konami's blessing on the condition that the developers made no money from its distribution. However, in August 2014, it was announced that the project was shut down due to Konami being unable to reach a decision about it.
