1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: NEWS: Toys for Bob go for a new Star Control and need your help (READ!) on: October 20, 2013, 10:33:55 am
I'm very happy that Stardock seems to respect the franchise where Accolade did not.  I was worried they would try to remove Ur Quan Masters to protect their new investment, so them saying they're fans of UQM is good news.  Who knows, maybe Stardock might allow the UQM team to properly rename it to Star Control II someday!

Stardock might be a small company, but they've carved out a niche for themselves in creating quality 4X games in the tradition of Civ and Masters of Orion.  They've got the basic foundation to create a successful SC2 reboot.  What they're not known for would be in depth writing and characterization, which is a very important piece to the Star Control puzzle.  We want these aliens to be interesting and funny.  Especially funny.  It's SC2's humor that stood out to me when I originally played it.  How Stardock will handle the story is anyone's guess.

I think it's great that they've reached out to Paul and Fred, and I hope they can convince them to contribute.  If not, then at the very least, I would hope that Paul and Fred create a 'spiritual successor' to Star Control someday.  A new property that they would own themselves.  Regardless, it's good that the ownership of the franchise has passed on to someone who actually gives a s**t. 

We all have high hopes and expectations, Stardock! We know you're reading this forum! Don't let us down!

I agree with you so much!  Wink
