    Toy's For Bob (i.e Paul Reiche & Fred Ford) - the creators of Star Control 2 (updated and resurrected recently as the open-source version "The Urquan Masters" - http://sc2.sourceforge.net/) - decided they want to make a (decent) sequel to the game - but they need your help!
    They need Activision to give them the rights to make the game (and use the name) so are asking fans of the original to sign the petition, showing their support and intention to buy, to Activision:

    Cheers,

    StarCon2 rocked

    The genre has been done very well since however.

    I'll check it out tonight.

    True- but nothing with the same level of humour and genuine personality as Sc2 - well, that I'm aware of, anyway :)

    Petition signed! Star Con 2 you rock my socks off.

    Wait - what? If you can suggest some games that are like Star Con 2 that would be awesome.

    The new game Sword of the Stars (demo until aug 22nd) is pretty similar. I'm enjoying the demo thoroughly.
