First off, I place lawyers, CEOs, and politicians in the same class of outright liars.
But. This guy sounds like someone I'd have a beer with (A good GERMAN beer! Heil! oops...). If it isn't an act, he loves the same adventure games so many of us do, and he wants them back.
God Bless Him if he pulls it off, even if he can't get the actual licenses and just makes good adventure games.
May he BURN in the darkest nether-regions of Tartarus (in the ice, for you Dante fans) while being impaled up the ass by pole made from the bones of Lucasarts corpse if he's just telling us what we want to hear.
Speaking of Euro-adventure games, WTF is my Longest Journey II???!??!
