Trade Wars Remake?

This Trade Wars Survey offers a one question investigation seeking word from those who have either played or hosted Trade Wars. This is to lay the groundwork for a possible update to the game in honor of its 20th anniversary: Word is:
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the original release of Trade Wars (December, 1986), I am pleased to announce that I have reached an agreement with Sylien Entertainment to develop a long-overdue graphical remake of this classic game. But before we can proceed, we need your help. Because Trade Wars is 20 years old, I have lost touch with all but a small percentage of its fanbase. Unless we can reach out to this fanbase and prove that interest in Trade Wars still exists, we will be unable to secure the funding necessary to complete this project.

To accomplish this, we are running a small survey to estimate the number of people who have played or hosted Trade Wars over the years. By answering this one-question survey, you will enable us to demonstrate the great potential of a new Trade Wars project. Nothing else will be required of you, but if you choose, you may request to receive a monthly Trade Wars newsletter with updates on our progress. And if you really want to help out, you can complete an optional, more extensive survey. We would love to learn more about your experience with Trade Wars.

If you were him, wouldn't you be thinking that you might be able to make it a much better game with the tech available today? And what about all the gamers now who never had the opportunity to play the game and never will, unless there's a remake?

If he's going to remake it, I hope he beefs it up a bit at least. It was great as a door game, and I played it for a few years, but people expect a lot more from games these days. It better be able to compete with other games feature-wise as well. Nostalgia alone won't cut it.


Information doesn't want to be free, it wants to be tied up and spanked. It told me so itself, in a naughty little whisper.
