Evony have – er – been active recently. The best over-view of the situation is courtesy of Game Set Watch. Bruce Everiss made a series of accusations against United Multiplayer Gaming Entertainment, Evony’s developer. They respond with a series of hefty old threatening letters. The Guardian’s got one too. The case has been filed in Australia of all places, which Bruce reads as an attempt to deliberately make it as hard as possible for him to defend himself. Really, it’s quite the mess. I advise you to start at GSW and see what you make of it.
