Plok 25th best game ever?

I was bombarded with twitter and facebook messages last week, pointing out that GamesRadar.com had named Plok as #25 in their list of the best SNES games ever.

They also added that the SNES was the best Nintendo console ever, and Nintendo make the best consoles, so that makes Plok the 25th best game ever, right?

Either way, we're honoured guys, thanks! Plok is in some pretty good company in that list. Metroid was number one. What a game!

It's great that Plok seems to be getting a lot of recognition these days as a really good game, as it wasn't a massive commercial hit at the time. We get a lot of emails asking for a Wii Virtual Console release, but unfortunately we only own the rights to the name and the character, not the SNES game itself. Shame.

Maybe it's time we dusted off our plans for a new Plok game?

Brett (the author of the GR article) and I recently beat Plok together. It would have been IMPOSSIBLE without the emulator's save state ;)

Anyway we LOVE Plok, a lot. Please do make another Plok game. (And please get Follin to do the soundtrack again!)
