This game looks like age of empires.

You been living under a rock? Lol. It's owned by the state of Rhode Island after 38 studios imploded.

They haven't auctioned it off yet?

lashes2ashes1428d ago

They did try and sell it and no one wanted it. Im pretty sure Rhode Island wanted something like twice its actual value.

I knew they had it a while back but thought it was sold by now.

"They did try and sell it and no one wanted it. Im pretty sure Rhode Island wanted something like twice its actual value."

Since they couldn't sell it at that value what happens to it now. Is it gone for good? You figure they would want/take any offer they could get because its not like they are going to be using the IP. Getting some cash is better than none.

I've always said the state of Rhode Island was always the primary reason for 38's closure. Shilling put everything into that company and Rhode Island almost quite literally threw him in the gutter. It was a bull situation that never should have happened.

Yes, they could have not been so ambitious to begin work on an MMO project (which always requires a retarded level of investment), but Rhode Island could have also been a little more lenient on the payback of their loan (they technically called in the loan's payback earlier than expected).

I seriously feel sorry for everyone involved in 38's closure. Amalur was a damn good game and a rare time in history where you have the perfect gathering of unique talent creating something truly wonderful.

Yeah Rhode Island wanted some ridiculous asking price that no one was willing to pay. Which is a huge shame considering the game was awesome, and had/had so much potential for future installments. I'm hoping they eventually sell it so it can have a future.

I love kingdoms of amalur. I hope somewhere down the road we get another one. Not likely to happen though.
