Default What happened with Shady O\'Grady???

Seriously, WTF, over?

One day all is well, the next day I get an email from Annette saying, "We regret to inform you that we have made a decision to bow out as publisher of Gilligames' Shady O'Grady's Rising Star and must cancel your pre-order"

Now it's like the game never was, forum gone, uhh, hello?

After all that hoorah and promotion........poof?

How about some explanation, please?

Hi Possum:

We just felt like SOGRS was not a good fit for us. We wish Todd the best with it, and I am sure you will see it resurface soon.

Happy Holidays!

Todd is continuing the beta testing off of a forum on his site so I guess the release is still pretty much on some sort of schedule.

The forum for SOGRS is now located here:

Rising Star Forum!

Sorry things didn't work out here. Hope to see supporters of the game on the new boards.

Cheers!

Indeed! In addition to what Tim mentioned, I'd like to mention that the split was civil and mutual. Don't forget that Shrapnel Games still carries my other game Space HoRSE (hint!)
