There were rumors of huge mismanagement of funds at 38 Studios..
How does one not expect this to happen if you mismanage loaned money and you're a new company with just one I.P under your belt?
My empathy is NOT with Schilling, but with the employees of 38 Studios.
More so that Epic Games cut ties with the very new company they formed with 38 Studios employees.
Amalur was a good game... but theres no ways in hell its dev cost was 75Mil to make.

"Amalur was a good game... but theres no ways in hell its dev cost was 75Mil to make."

It didn't. The $75 million loan was also for their unfinished MMO; Copernicus:

"The filing says the economic agency's board "well knew" the amount 38 Studios was getting wouldn't be nearly enough to fully finance the game. The resolution approved by the board says the estimated cost of the game's production is "in excess of $125 million.""

Plus! They used that money on more than games, according to some reports they ate and drank like kings. Taxpayers are the losers in this case.

I realllllllly wanted to like Kingdoms of Amalur but it's mechanics were just off and the world wasn't that fun to explore...I would literally have 10 quests to do and no real way of knowing how to do them!'
