In an interview with Gamasutra, Tsui states that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD was a proof of concept shown to Activision to convince them to greenlight a full Tony Hawk title. Tsui says that by jumpstarting this "lower risk" venture, Robomodo was allowed to take more chances, and now, "the prospect of a fuller game is definitely on the table -- it's just a matter of when and how."
Go ahead Robomodo. Allow split-screen play, implement the ability to skip music tracks, tweak the physics a bit, and I'll be the first in line.
