Hello all! Long time lurker here and now sixth-time poster.
I'll get right down to it - less than a month ago, a small campaign has been started to draw attention to MediEvil and hopefully bring Sony to produce a remake of the original two games or even a brand new game. Our initial goal was to get the hashtag #ResurrectFortesque trending on Twitter on October 30th. We managed to drum up a pretty significant amount of attention within a pretty short amount of time, and although we failed to get the hashtag to trend that day, we are now bringing in successes far greater.
To make a long story short, our campaign is now, at the very least, known by Sony London Studio, Tarsier Studios (the team behind Little Nightmares and one of a small amount of proposed developers we are floating to continue the series), and most notably Shawn Layden (President of Sony Interactive Entertainment America and Chairman of Sony Interactive Studios Worldwide). One of our most recent Tweets, a mockup advertisement for an N. Sane Trilogy-style remake of the first two MediEvil games, is now the top result for Sony's very own #BuildingTheList hashtag. We've also received news coverage from Push Square, GameZone, and comicbook.com, among others. Two Reddit posts regarding the campaign have together reached over 2,500 points alone within days of each other. We have proven, and are continuing to prove, that we are capable of reaching Sony and showing them that there is sufficient demand for a MediEvil comeback.
With permission from the moderators, I'd like to ask anyone that's interested in supporting to join us at our social media pages. We are planning another big #ResurrectFortesque day within the coming months, and with your help, I sincerely believe that we have a shot at resurrecting Sir Daniel Fortesque back from the dead once again. Thank you!
(P.S: No need for any dissenting comments, e.g. "it'll never work", "Sony doesn't listen to fans"; trust me - I've heard it all before! We're still doing it!
