Hi ya,
I read the CoC through twice, and I do hope this is not considered off-topic material:

Toys for Bob, the makers of Star Control II, are considering making a sequel to the series. What they need now, is for many, many fans of the game to sign a petition to show their publisher, Accolade, that there is already a large customer base, and that the game is therefore worth doing.

The petition is at:
http://sc2.sourceforge.net/petition/petition.php

Please, only send it if you know and like the game, and would like to see a (real) sequel.

More than anything else, this might blur the lines distinguishing advertising...

Wouldn't Star Control III be the sequel to Star Control II?

Well, yes, but SC3 sucked, and in the event of another sequel, would likely be disowned entirely in the manner of Highlander 2: The Quickening.

What Thuryl said. Besides, SC3 didn't have the original designers (Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford) on the team. Basically what it did was water down and/or ruin every interesting story line that SC2 built.

By the way, did I actually reach anyone who cares with this thing? Because if just one email got sent, I'd consider the topic a success.

Edit: typo.

Well, alright. I liked Star Control III's ship battles, at least. I spent a lot of time fighting my friends in them.

The label SC will forever and always stand for StarCraft. Please do not confuse it with this game...

Is the next Starcraft game going to be Starcraft:Ghost (the first person shooter) or Starcraft2 ?
