Post Policenauts "family tree" (spoilers)
I've looked all over the internet, and couldn't find anything conclusive. Can anyone confirm if Tony Redwood (and presumably Ridley) was created using Jonathan's DNA? The game said multiple times that the Frozeners were more or less clones/sons of the Policenauts, and Redwood seems to resemble Jonathan the most. More importantly, their relationship is very similar to that of Big Boss and Liquid Snake. Like Liquid (or vise-versa), Redwood seems to be hellbent on proving that he's better than Jonathan, and not just a flawed copy, a shadow of someone he despises.

As I mentioned before, if Tony was created from Jonathan, then Ridley must have been too. This would mean that Jonathan is Marc's uncle or grandfather, depending on how you look at his relationship to Ridley and Tony.

It's never resolved; I think the fact that Kojima leaves quite a bit to the player's imagination is one of the game's strengths (especially compared to some of his subsequent work). Even Redwood's death is left ambiguous. Everything that you see and that's said, and what you don't see and what isn't said, after his fall supports either interpretation, i.e., he survived or he didn't.

It's not just the Policenauts, by the way. They used sperm from regular astronauts as well.

I see. Very good points! I'll just go with my hypothesis; it's more exciting that way. :mrgreen:

PS: Thank you very much for creating the Policenauts translation(s). You guys did a fantastic job, and if it weren't for you and your team I wouldn't have been able to play the game.
