Aloha, Bjornke:

Thanks for the positive feed back that "yes, it could be doable." I was 
worried for a minute I had walked into a room full of Grand Theft Auto 
developers who thought I was insane (smile).

On the other hand, I think we need to accept Rick's understanding that  
our expectations, as stated, were really out of our league.

OK I see that may have been a bad strategy on my part...So if asking for 
years of experience and 20 games under the belt... if that was too high 
then let us lower the bar.

How about  we change the parameters to "anyone interested in giving it a 
try?" As we said, we are just in "brainstorming" stages.

FYI, the first game would involve concepts from this theme:

Karma Management

It's really not that esoteric... it's all about life decisions.
