Report: 38 Studios fighting to stay solvent

Ex-baseball star Curt Schilling's videogame development studio, 38 Studios, is in financial trouble, as Rhode Island state officials have been meeting with Schilling to keep the company solvent.

According to Rhode Island state governor Lincoln Chafee in a statement to the local NBC news affiliate, "We're always working to keep Rhode Island companies solvent, and that's what we're doing with 38 Studios." (38 Studios, Dev, Industry, Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It would be sad if they disappeared after just one game which I thought was very good. It showed real potential for a future I hope they have.

410,000 units doesn't seem like a lot but thats pretty good for a new company/IP.

It seems like the public was more pissed that they had the garuanteed loan of $75 mill to relocate in RI and the new governor is trying to save constituents.

It is damn good but it didn't sell well due to bad marketing. Fable style visuals and QTEs don't make for good advertising.
