There have been plenty of threads before about what games we’d love to see have sequels. But this is a bit different. In this scenario, you have been given an unlimited amount of money to make a sequel to one computer game, but you can only make one. And you can tap whatever game designers/developers you choose. Want Irrational to make System Shock 3, but also have Doug Church (who is at EA) work on it? Be my guest. Want to have both Toys for Bob and Tim Schafer make Star Control 3, go for it.
So what game will it be, and who will develop it?
As for me, I’d give whatever money and resources Tom Hall needs to make the sequel to Anacrhonox.
A good and worth sequel, that takes all the great points/features of the predecessor and updates them with all the newest features sets graphics and a few new twists that don’t detract from what made the original great? X-Com! or Jagged Alliance, can’t decide
Though I don’t think Molyneux would be my first choice to make it. I’d prefer Soren Johnson, Tim Schafer or Shigeru Miyamoto’s take on the project. Then off to Justin Sweet, Aleksi Briclot or Greg Staples as an art lead. Lastly I’d hire a group for the musical talent, starting with a group like Arcana but I’d be pretty flexible depending on the feel the designer wanted to create and their preference.
