Yep. They shut this one down.

This one may be more understandable.

Yeah... Any game that replicates a sierra game that uses a more modern engine or rather an game engine better than the original is illegal.

If they weren't re-releasing the collections it would be bs but since they are I can understand.

Oct 9. And there goes another one:
Space Quest III Remake, by Hybrid Studios have also been shut down. In these recent turn of events, we really do see the evil side of Vivendi, closing down anything that moves.

It's sad to see this happening, and I don't even want to think about what happens next.

I don't know. But again I kindov sympathize with Vivendi on this one. I say to keep pushing KQIX and let this one go. Just talk on forums and maybe write a letter as I have.

I just sent an email to Phoenix Online Studios, but it came back undeliverable. As I stated, I'm a lawyer and would like to help out with these two projects in any way I can. I think a response letter should be prepared for both projects. A negotiation may be possible. If anyone knows how I can contact the directors of either of these projects, let me know.

You could always sign up on their forum and make a post here.

This is a link off of the original letter where they broke the news of the shutdown. They said they are interested in hearing what people have to say.

No excuse for doing shutting down projects. Doesn't make any sense financial or otherwise. Like I said, I know people are going to buy the compilations regardless unless they turn out to be complete crap and having a fan-game released or not isn't going to hurt sales. People that like these games are never going to suddenly hate the originals and people who never bought these games before probably aren't going to buy them now either and they don't know about fan games or anything. The only excuse I'd accept for shutting down projects is if they were trying to sell these games and make money off them. But if it's a free tribute to games they love and they just want to honor them, then Vivendi is just shooting themselves in the foot and alienating their very fanbase.
