That may be better. 3rd parties may be more willing to play ball if it's someone like SSM versus some random upstart.
Hmm, that's a good point actually.
I just can't imagine Santa Monica wasting their time on this, though. If Superbot had developed the game for 2 years and then passed it off? Sure! I think they'd go crazy trying to get meaningful third party commitments.
But the game's kind of already dead. Nothing can really resuscitate it. If Cloud, Crash, and Spyro were all put in as free DLC tomorrow, how many copies of the game would it push? I can't imagine it'd be anything significant enough to salvage this, and that's an absolute pipedream that'll never happen anyway.
If I haven't mentioned Trivio in my post, it's because she is so beautiful and precarious that I just wanted to show her how much she means to me.
