    Point taken, sir!

    Perhaps I should in the future live a little less in the land of my own imagination...

    It's a bit complicated. [etc]
    Ah, that makes sense. Here I thought it was just some random guy who decided to make a sequel to your game

    I must admit I'm not adverse to reskins ( I remember I had a real phase of wanting to do remixes of my games ), even my current personal project is a re-boot of a game from 2003 and one of our live projects is a reskin of my very first Flash game from then too.

    Sometimes I'm just selling my soul to pay the rent, sometimes it's just a spark of an idea to do an existing game in a different light ( MJ-1912 being a prime example, http://www.gywgames.com/mj1912/ ) and sometimes to be blunt, it's a business decision ( Nothing on the horizon in terms of a release, or a couple of games finished but not live, it's not against my principles to re-hash an old game if it can be done quickly and maintains our standards just to keep the pimp wheels rolling ).

    I don't think I've ever done a sequel as such, I guess X++ could be considered a sequel as opposed to a reboot, but I don't see it that way.

    I think it's 'cause I'm yet to do a game I feel strongly enough about to do a full blown follow up, that, and just having so many ideas and so little time.
    I guess a sequel to Polarity would be cool, to fix all the things I didn't like in the final version, but it would only be a sequel in spirit as I don't own any of the IP to do with it.

    Anyway, all these words just to try and show I'm not a hypocrite with the whole sequel thing

    I have done sequels: "ShoOot", "ShoOot 2 - Revenge of Square" and "ShoOot 3 - Curse of the White Square". They share same style but gameplay is somewhat different in each and I completely rewrote the game every time.
