Hitman: Codename47 21th Anniversary

21 years ago, today, Codename47 released and started the story of agent 47! I clearly remember how thrilled I was as a -5 years old person.

I’ve played that one too but shame it was PC exclusive as I’d love to rediscover it on console.

I discovered the game after having played Hitman: Contracts and I told myself that some missions were the same as H: Contracts.
PS : it’s the 47 of Hitman 2 : Silent Assassin cover.

Happy Birthday, Codename 47. 21 Years ago you’ve stolen my heart and still refuse to let it go, just like i refuse to end my crusade for a faithful HD Remaster for all Platforms, until every gamer around the world can play this gem on the platform of his/her choice.

You are my forever-game.

I loved how after playing Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and other games, you came back to this one and no one was batting an eye ever when you grab a disguise, it was a breath of fresh air for guards not to freak out if you stick around them for a little too long :laughing:

It’s fun to see what a small group of devs made all those years ago has become. 8 main games, a couple of other games like GO and sniper, some books and a couple movies. Not too shabby.

The fanbase could be a better place WITHOUT the movies though :grin:

I didn’t hate either of them. First one was better. Neither were great.

Will MrOchoa get a therapist for his C47 delusions? Will IOI finally announce C47 remaster? Will the forum ever solve the conundrum that is -5 year old hickhas (was he a sperm, or an egg? Maybe just carbon)? Find out next on C47’s 21st anniversary!

I have it on good authority that Hichkas is actually a silicon based organism.

Sperms don’t last for 4-5 years do they? I’m Vecna(an earth wizard who reached godhood) from the D&D world, manipulating time in the upside down.

It lasts five days when outside the body.

but it’s not outside 5 years before your birth :man_shrugging: unless you’re a clone which I for sure can state am not.

Oh if it is inside the genitalia it is longer, being a mere few weeks instead of five or so days provided a person is physically fit.

Not a single word from IO to the 21st Anniversary, neither here nor on ioi.dk, or even a Tweet. That’s just sad.

They’re mostly concerned with Hitman 3 not being nominated in more categories at The Game Awards :roll_eyes:

Fixed.

First one was dumb, but kinda fun. Second one should be classified as a crime against humanity though.

Hmm, we better ask the real Hichkas to provide photos of himself when he was 15. Just to be sure…

peace of fact that the real Hichkas was 15 when C47 came out :smiley:
Photos vary from his 15-17 (2000, 2002) below

:joy:
You don’t count the new trilogy as 3? I get that argument but then why not count Contracts as an expansion pack to H2SA? Now we’re at 5 :joy:
