    spring cleaning? Ill take the licence if you don't want it. They seem to be on the rampage today litterally. Maybe its the turn of the seasons or the fact being human has ended =(

    You'd be really annoyed if you'd work on that for eight years and were about to release it, only to be told it wasn't going to happen.
    It that were me I'd take the code and release it over a torrent anyway.

    When I saw the announcement on their site at the end of February words just escaped me. I've been following the games progress since 2004 and it's an absolute joke that they can just close it down like this after so many people have put so much work into it. I'm sure Activision have their reasons but it's not like they're working on any Kings Quest games, and everybody that wants their £10 Kings quest bundle on Steam has probably already got it. *******s

    Is it just me or is Activision now where EA was 2+ years ago?
    All about the £/$, sequel after sequel, sod the consumer and the developers.

    tbh comparing EA then and ACT now is like comparing the class bully to Hitler.

    tbh I hope PS3 and Sony go into administration and that European Union deem Xbox as uncompetetive, just because operated my Microsoft.
    That only scenario will rid us from Activision.

    This just gave me a great story for a movie aimed at console gamers. Yes $$$$$$$ money

    Fan projects like this tend to boost the games popularity. Activision obviously dont like free PR :(
