Nature abhors a vacuum and I suppose the same can be said about gamers.
Recently, a press release was issued about an upcoming title that we were working on. (I'll tell you more about that later) Not much was said apart from the name of the game and the various folks involved in the process. As soon as the news was out, the various forums and blogs were filled with speculation about what the content of the game would be. Many compared it to a game based on a similar subject and instantly proclaimed that such an effort would fail (extreme cases had that failure bringing dishonor onto the original property that spawned the game, etc.) Oddly enough, the farther the poster was from the truth, the more vehemently they defended their reasoning. All I can say about that is just relax all will be revealed in due time. It's only a game after all.
