James Pond Revival via Kickstarter

Update: Kickstarter link!

If you had a similar upbringing in gaming as I did, through the Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari 512, Sega MegaDrive and so on, even as a young, wide-eyed gamer it would have been hard to miss the James Pond franchise.  An obvious spin-off of James Bond, you play the role of protagonist James Pond, underwater agent, and something that looks like a hybrid fish-something.  The big skill was always in the infinite stretching this guy could do.
