The creator of Grand Theft Auto, whose top-down viewpoint radically shifted when the game when 3d, is remaking the classic Liberty City. Re-rendering the city in 3D using the game development tool GameMaker: Studio.

While there is nothing to actually "play" with in the new Liberty City map we do get to go on a virtual tour of the city in a brand new way. Michael Dailly, the creator, is updating his progress on the project via his Twitter feed. He says he'll decide what to do with his 3D Liberty City once it's complete, chances are there will be no gameplay involved but it's nice to see the gritty city living again.
