For those of you that did not know, Activision is now named Activision Blizzard. If I remember well the story, Blizzard (who was part of vivendi) and activision got fusioned (fusion INCLUDE vivendi). That what basicly happen.. so TFB is now in family with Blizzard...seem crazy to me =P

I can't figure out why it won't let me in the petition...  Angry Angry Angry

EDIT: Never mind, I got it! I said "PLEASE LET TOYS FOR BOB MAKE ANOTHER GAME!!!!!!" Not completely like that, but you get the general idea.

What exactly does the Activision/Blizzard merger have to do with Star Control, Accolade, Atari, or Infogrames?

Activision owns Toys for Bob, which is run by the creators of Star Control, who own the copyright on the Star Control universe.

They did. And later Activision bought them.

A different game in the same spirit as Star Control right? Not "Tony Honk's Downhill Jam 2"?  Sad

So, it's been 4 years since the official petition on TFB's sight has been started, and 10 years at least since the Pages of Now and Forever's petitions. Any progress at all?

I was asking myself the same thing...
It's been so long and the people want another game.
As time goes as loyal as we SC2 fans are, our numbers are getting smaller...

Which is why it is important that those still around stay active and visible, so that TFB has a vibrant community to point to, not just a couple of half dead forums where some people post every fortnight or so.

I will never abandon StarControl.
TFB are making(slowly) non-StarControl game, so there is no hope I guess.
