I expect Spiders are pretty happy at the moment. I'm sure they had a nice payday from the acquisition, and now have a bigger budget for the sort of games they want to make. Good luck to them.

That game nostalgia reminded me of this. Pongo appears to be a fellow Brit, so might get all these local references, but I reckon most folks from the 80s will get the sentiment.
