Hmm yes Matt it's not hard to imagine a more ambitous follow up to what really isn't a game at all i suppose - not in the traditional sense at least.I do personally think this is a game, though one that maybe hasn't been expanded to a more ambitious level
That said i find the tension built up from trying to stay alive each time, to be something you rarely get from games - maybe it's design was this way for a reason and a sequel would in fact miss the point as to why this worked for some
