I'm sorry, but there's nothing new there. She's already said that she wants to and will make GK4. Just as long as she gets the rights for it, once she has proven Pinkerton Road can produce games. Really, there needs to be something more than just (stretched) rhetorics to act as an actual hint.

I mean, I'm not ruling out a remake, but I think all things considered, it doesn't go with, well, all things considered :P

(Edit): Sorry if that sounded aggressive, I just reread it and it's I didn't mean to be quite so :)

Hey! No worries! We're all entitled to our opinions. Even if yours are wrong. :lol:

Heh, well... :)

Anyway, I just remember all those people who were almost aggressively bitter after the Pinkerton Road teaser videos from GM and GK turned out not to be GK4, even though (in my opinion) it was a huge stretch to assume that, not to mention taking it as granted.

Oh, I wasn't bitter when they did that. I defended it, as part of Jane's previous work. I thought that made sense. Even if MYSTERY GAME X is not GK, I won't be disappointed (or too surprised). It just seems odd timing, about MGX, and she's digging up GK related art. Maybe I am reading too much into it - but like I said, I won't be disappointed either way. I already backed up her Kickstarter long before she mentioned MGX. (I also backed up LSL, and when I get home tonight will be backing up SpaceVenture).

There have been some pretty negative posts (many unfair/unjustified) in both Jane's and Al's Kickstarter threads on Adventure Gamers.

And that my friend is exactly why I have given up on every forum except this one.

(Well I post on a few that, I myself, run - but they're pretty quiet).

About $30k to go in 2.5 days. Pretty soon lurkers will receive e-mail reminders about the end of the project, see it's funded, see the stretch goals, and hopefully pitch in.

I'm a final day contributor, so Jane will get some from me too. I'm sure there's plenty more to come. In fact funding seems to be catching speed, which is not unusual for the final days of a kickstarter.

I think my wife would punch me in the throat if I mentioned contributing to another Kickstarter. :lol:
