Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw:
I hadn't heard that Grin (the developer) went down. I only found out when I was researching the new Strider, because there was something unquantifiably familiar around Strider that made me think of Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Grin's 2D remake-in-the-traditional-sens e of Bionic Commando, which preceded its utterly retarded triple-A gritty installment. As it turns out, Grin was working on a Strider reboot before it went down. I can't seem to find any confirmed connection between that and Double Helix's Strider, I don't know if it picked up any bits and pieces of Grin's version or if the projects had individual talents in common, but I wouldn't be surprised.
