Double Fine COO Recalls 'Demoralizing' Brutal Legend Challenges

Double Fine's Brutal Legend is an epic tale of big hair and heavy metal, but perhaps the true epic was the creation and challenging launch of the game, which was hindered by a change of publishers and a subsequent lawsuit.

Vivendi Games was Brutal Legend's original publisher, but when Activision and Vivendi announced their merger in 2007, the game didn't fit into Activision's publishing plans. Double Fine learned about the uncertain future of Brutal Legend the same way that most gamers found out. (Brutal Legend, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
