Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

Taken from the e-mail from a (supposed now-former) 38/BHG employee.Our medical insurance runs out tonight at midnight.
We found this out when an employee's pregnant wife was told by her doctor, this was on Tuesday 22nd May this week.
Says it all, really.
Wonder how much management and their expensive consultants took home from this mismanagement. Free money from the taxpayers.
Govt backed loans are being successful in other countries, black spot on other USA states willing to support the game industry. They did a real good job to convince them that MMOs are the real deal. 300+ staff they were pushing for a big production. While small time MMOs can exist and sustain themselves.
Rise of Nations was a superb game from BHG.
I mean, what was their long-term plan? Assume that Amalur sold extremely well and hope that would be enough to subsidize the MMO development? At the rate at which the company has crashed, they must have been assuming a COD or similar level of sales, which is just absurd.
You're dead on about their long-term plan. They expected Amalur to be a success of Oblivion / Skyrim proportions which then would split off into an MMO, similar to Warcraft ---> World of Warcraft. Reckoning was just meant to get people invested in the world, which it failed to do.
