In light of the recent announcement that LucasArts has decided to stop production on Full Throttle 2, we asked Tim Schafer, creator and director of the original Full Throttle, for comment. Here's what he had to say:
“I heard they just couldn’t go on without the emotional support of Tom Sarris. I mean, Tom was the person Ben Throttle was based on. Not a lot of people know that. So I guess they finally just realized there was no way to do it with out him.”
Deep down, didn't we all know it to be true? (for the dense: Schafer is joking) Check out this thread on the Mixnmojo forums to discuss all of the insanity.
