Well, I'm sure I've done this before but...
We gave it a fair shot, working for over a year with Paul Brown to try
to purchase the rights to the game engine for a fair price. We had an
agreement in principle and were arranging to make a trip to Paul to seal
the deal when we were told (for the first time) that he did not have the
complete authority to make this arrangement and that it has been decided
that the game would not be sold. This decision was made by someone who
had never been involved in the discussion, but apparently has complete
authority to veto any deal.
So, in a nutshell... We were lied to one last time. And from there the
idea died. There are plenty of people who are doing good things with
the game. Our group felt that the only way to do more was to do it with
the complete authority that having control of the game engine would
allow. And that became impossible in the course of one day.
I wish it would have ended differently, there were things that could
have been done differently with what we had started. But after getting
that news, there was not much will to continue and thus nobody followed
through on what was started. And I am, yet again...
