Had a thought - if BTAS were set in our current present day, do you think Riddle of the Minotaur would still be a computer game, or do you think Eddie could have created it as a puzzle game in the form of a free phone app instead? It may be more accessible that way, so more people playing his game = a very happy Ed?
He probably would have done both. Y’know how there’re some games with a full version on PC or console and then they have like a mini version on phones or handhelds that’s either the same game with the levels slightly changed or a different game along the same lines? I think he’d do that.
The way gaming works these days would potentially make a cult classic like Riddler of the Minotaur very profitable. It’d take him like two seconds to whip up a few DLC maps he could market a season pass with - it looks like a lot of work and worth the twenty bucks to the common consumer, but to him it’s taking money from babies. The mobile version would, of course, have in-app purchases, and if he could get away with it maybe even spyware. After all, if his game gets THAT famous even BATMAN might download it…
