Vampire: Bloodlines was a niche market? Arcanum was a game for a niche market? What about ToEE?

I don't know about you, but those seemed like large, established markets to me. Arcanum and ToEE were isometric RPGs in the vein of Baldur's Gate or Fallout... Vampire Bloodlines was a first/third-person RPG in the vein of... other F/TP RPGs...

Hmm...

Even Baldur's Gate can be considered a niche game. ArmA is too, as were Splinter Cell (well, when it was a stealth game), Thief and Hitman. Yes, it sucks we're not getting this type of games, but that's the truth :/

I own some of their games. But it was classy to offer their employees some type of severance and continue their insurance. Way to think ahead. They all will find jobs……

Well this is great news that they made money. I do wish you could buy them on Steam though.
