       If this was pre-HB-crash, do you remember what kind of reception it had the first time round?   

       Good idea me thunks.

       Err..not a lot, you'd be about the third poster. If I remember people were being pedantic over Hawk's and Hawks. I thought this game was a pretty obvious eventuality at the time and I suppose that I've been proved right.(No wonder that software company wouldn't give me a job or sumptin.)

       What's the general consensus for what to do with HB ideas that are later baked in the real world? Apart form the obligatory pat on the author's back?

       Ta, if you go back to the date, Parkour was heating up here in the UK, so was summer and if I remember "Jump London" had been released on DVD. Someone saw the opportunity.Coincidence if you ask me.   

       //consensus for what to do with HB ideas that are later baked in the real world?// probably zip unless we're informed otherwise.
