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.

As one of the people who never played TW back in its day, a friend talked me into participating in a game that he had set up for the workplace. I was bored to tears, but managed to stick with it for a couple weeks to try and give it a fair chance. Unfortunately it never got much better so I eventually just stopped playing.

So many people talk about all the classic of the old days, but today expectations are higher and the same stuff won't impress gamers like they did back then. Even a remake of TW with graphics wouldn't be much fun to me, I would expect them to add significantly more features and gameplay elements, almost to the point that it turns into a Master of Orion type game, but more focused on your fleet of ships.

My 2c.
