The other question is whether the money is there for a sequel. If Obsidian want to do it and if any rights issues can be sorted out there is still the question of who will pay the x million required for development. I doubt Obsidian themselves have the required money sitting around, perhaps unless it were to be some sort of low budget in house (Onyx based) game for Live/ PSN/ PCDD.
I was skeptical, because Alpha Protocol has not so good Testresults in German Game-Magazins (for PC), that was the reason I do not bought it for the full price.
Over the weekend I bought it on Steam (low price) and I like the game very much. Especially the story is great. I must say, the Game-Magazins are wrong. Alpha Protocol is a great game!!
It is true a sequel / prequel without a big Publisher is almost a "Mission Impossible". Anyway, I would be ready, to donate (of course not 1000 US$ but maybe 100 US$ or so) for the development. I read that more than 700000 pieces are sold - maybe they are others to donate money!! Maybe Obsidian (or somebody else) can start a survey to see if there is a potential for Alpha Protocol 2 and if the users are willing to donate for the development of Alpha Protocol 2. Maybe somebody can start a Online-Petition "Pro Alpha Protocol 2" and send it to Sega!!
Maybe I am too excited about it, but it would be very sad, if Mike would die forever.
Happy new Year to everybody!!
