Have you heard of Interplay? They're the company that published titles such as Earthworm Jim, Boogerman, MDK, and Descent. Obviously they have fallen on hard times, since they announced that they're going to be selling off all of their intellectual properties. Turns out this is an all or nothing deal, so people can't just buy Earthworm Jim for example. No price has been listed, people interested have been instructed to contact Wedbush's Joe Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do you or someone you know have possibly thousands of dollars laying around? Well this is your chance!
But seriously, I'm hoping these IPs go to a worthy developer, and not languish like many IPs have in the past, like System Shock. I'd especially love to see another MDK come out.
What do you think?
