Homeworld HD/CE Survey

Gearbox Software is conducting a Homeworld Survey to poll the community for opinions on how they should deal with their recently acquired IP for the space strategy series. The survey starts with general gaming questions and then drills into Homeworld, investigating awareness of the franchise before introducing the Homeworld HD concept and gauging how much gamers might be willing to pay for an updated version of Relic's first installment in the series. They also question whether there is interest in a Collector's Edition, how much such a collection would be worth, and what items it could include to inspire your purchase. They also ask similar questions about willingness to buy a Homeworld art book. Thanks nin via Polygon.

Collectors edition? Like with a high quality illustrated manual including dozens of pages of awesome back-story and concept art that got you into the mood before you even finished driving home? (it's much harder than texting, but don't judge teenage me! I was EXCITED).

I already have that on the shelf. Gimme Win 7 compatible, HD, modable, reworked netcode, maybe some UI tweaks. Age of Empires 2 HD style (A game that didn't make the jump as well due to being 2d, and the initial offering was pretty lame due to seriously bad engine bugs or "optimisations", but the scope was right!)

edit: Just did the survey. No longer cynical. The updated textures and rendering is a given, it's the hard-copy stuff that was famously awesome in the originals and super risky for Gearbox (Hence Survey). Do they print 10, 20, 50 thousand? Kitchen sink or minimal effort? Could sink the whole project (And chances at HW2) right there with the wrong guess. The game was never competitive enough in MP to have long legs past the play your mates level so gauging nostalgia is the way to go. Could you imagine shipping that interface today? I don't even think grognards like us would put up with it (Despite bemoaning the simplified plane-oriented nature of games like SoaSE.

And thanks for asking guys!
