It was an interesting story worth reading. I think it just needs an M Night twist. Sounds like so much expense and time getting paid nothing, the royalties must be a lot. Best of luck going forward.

LOL. Thanks

Truth is, I re-read a lot of my posts about my games to come up with those notes I sent you. And doing so, helped me remember some of the details, which also made for a better interview.
