That may be true, but my point here is, that one of the developers of the proposed as yet untitled game was the writer and designer of a classic game, Wiz 8, whose writing and design were to some degree, perhaps a large degree, not her own. Why does that matter? Because the proposed game has been described to be more of a Wizardry than an Anachronox. The main selling point, and one of the few selling points, of the proposed game is that the developers were directly responsible for those classic games they mention throughout their pitch, so we can trust them to make a new one that is similar. You can surely see why a reasonable person might not be convinced.
