I liked the games back in the day, nay, loved the games. I even loved the bugged to jittery 'First Encounters'. But I feel there is an element of the Lucas about him. In fact, years ago I was spurred on to try EVE when he harped on about how they stole his idea. And now, years later, he's coming out with the same idea.

I dunno, he was an advocate of Rasperry Pi and all that (iirc) but I think he's just trying to launch off a nostalgia platform that has seen games like Syndicate and X-Com come to life.
