Very good response. Your logic holds if we were just concerned from a business standpoint. I am looking at the consumer level, those that do not have the knowledge you pointed out. Many looking at the box cover will think it was the same team, Ben Sokal included, who developed Post Mortem.
Microids did publish Post Mortem but it was entirely different teams at Microids that developed both games especially if you look at the credits of both games. As a consumer, when I look at the box I want to know that the actual team that developed Syberia was also behind Post Mortem.
I am not interested so much that the same publisher developed the game but that the same group of people that worked on Syberia were involved in Post Mortem. Essentially, Ben Sokal and team were not at the helm of Post Mortem since they are currently working on the sequel to Syberia. Since we are all adventure gamers here, we should always look at the consumer level before ever considering the business standpoint.
Thanks for your comments Laura and Jack. Have an excellent weekend!
