Obsidian try to convince SEGA, or create a similar project for Alpha Protocol for another publisher.

For me, Alpha Protocol is one of the most brilliant ideas you had, instead of promoting NEW VEGAS who genuinely is really ugly, you make a new Alpha Protocol 2 or similar game, so why miss a game platform in the market VG.

In italy there are so many kids waiting for a sequel to this game, because the only defects were:

-the graphics, animations and camera view a little jerky.

the rest was simply divine.

Maybe just call it another name, and have similar gameplay mechanics, with spy histories...no need to call it alpha protocol 2

I read that AP cost something in excess of 8 million to make. I doubt that much could be raised via crowdfunding.

As far as I can remember Sega said no to the sequel due to the poor sales. And as Posbi states it's too big project for ks, shame, it was a flawed gem but I liked it very much.

I would kill for AP2. :( It was this game that brought me to these forums the first time, to find out if there were others who couldn't understand the hate for this game. Oh, and if anyone's wondering, that is a serious offer to kill someone if AP2 were offered as payment... :skeptical:

Going to try to find a target for you :)
Is the offer valid outside the US?

Alpha Protocol is one of the finest RPG-experiences I've ever had. While the gameplay itself usually was little more than "OK", the way the game handled characterisation, dialogue, and the whole choice & consequence formula, are nigh-unparalleled. It's sad that it was not a more commercial success, of course, but then again, aren't many of our masterpieces often overlooked not only in this day and age, but throughout history?

I would love another Alpha Protocol (or, barring that, a spiritual successor with the same kind of character development). I don't understand why it didn't do that great. Sure, the combat was kind of minimalist but I thought it was fun, and I'm not really a spy movie person.

Who wouldn't?

Except for the ones bashing AP without playing it of course for reasons beyond human comprehension...

Yes. In front of their HQ with pitchforks and torches.

 

I hate companies that hold an IP hostage even though the creators would be interested in making a sequel (or so I understand).

I would love to see an Alpha Protocol 2 or a new real-world environment RPG from Obsidian :)

 

Was some interesting talk about it here.

AP was a fantastic game actually. Mechanically it was ok bordering on really good. But we all know that.

 

Story wise it was fantastic, and RPG mechanics were excellent. I loved the story and dialogue. We all know obsidian can write, but their range and skill really showed in this one. Clearly outside of their normal territory they crafted an immense diverse story that hooked me from go.

 

If not a specific sequel I would love to see an RPG crafted in the spy thriller setting again. Heck make it in the style of an IE game, the story and setting would still rock and you could do some really neat things with that setup.

I always forget that you are you, the fellow Teasman from that time when hanging out on the Bioware forum was not associated with wierd alien erotic fetishes.

Agreed. AP was one of the best shooters I played even though it had some faults. Really miss those spy shooters.
