Necromunda?
Have the devs thought of a faithful recreation of something like Necromunda? Most of it was meant to be taking place in the Underhive so it could be a little like a space hulk.

I just think the variety of characters of Necromunda was always pretty engaging.

Well GW didn´t renew the license , so basically till somebody picks it up .

The license is there to rot , when somebody picks it up , GW laywers will be there to bother them , especially if it is succesfull .
But one thing , maybe it is good to make Necromunda Successfull .
See what happened to blood bowl .

But I would love to see fullcontrol do a faithfull recreation of Necromunda .
You got tons of DLC to sell :P in gangs and scenerio .

TBH, Necromunda should have been the basis for a 40k MMO. All the fun of 6-way RvR and objective-based PvP; none of the balance issues caused by allowing people to play as Space Marines(though you could possibly play as SM or xenos in a sort of session mode, like monster play in LOTRO).
Could be utterly fraking awesome. But will never happen, so I'd be a sad panda, if I was a panda.

Yes Necromunda have so much potential. I just hope that if someone do a Necromunda game that it will be done right. And that there won't be too much concessions or tuning down made for tablet or phone games.

Of course it's been discussed in the team but there are some challenges with making a faithful adaption of the game, epscially scenarios with tall buildings where small cracks and angles make a difference. We would also need to get a license and secure funding for the project, so there's a long way from "that could be cool" to actually doing it :)

I understand that making a port of another board game is more than just reopening the files and changing data . . . but seeing as how as a studio you've started to develop expertise in this sort of thing I would really love to see versions of Adeptus Titanicus, Dark Future, Space Crusade or Hero Quest

Oh come on you would run into the same scenerio with Jagged Alliance Flashback ,people won´t be satisfied unless they are allowed to climb rooftops etc .

But funding wise , kickstarter is a good goal , license wise it is free for now :P
Till GW picks it up , they dumped it in 2012 I think (too lazy to google it at this moment)
Maybe you guys can force GW to pick it up , recreate a cheap edition restock it 6 months .
And give some quality time to hobby at a cheap price , instead of ridiculous expensive price .

Anyway it would be using the jagged alliance flashback engine :P
Just cause the license has been expired , you can even convert it to a D100 system . instead of limited D6 .
