|clickBOOM: S-Files 22 - Cinemaware-Games|
clickBOOM publishes details about Cinemaware-games in its latest S-Files 22: "Below you will be able to find more information on the current state of PC/Mac Digital Remasters (Wings, Lords of the Rising Sun, It Came from the Desert and Rocket Ranger) which we have been developing for over a year for Cinemaware, Inc.
Digital Remasters proved to be a very challenging, yet very satisfying undertaking, as it required disassembling a 10-15 year old code which was originally never meant to be used on anything other than the computers of that era (namely Amiga 500 and 8-bit consoles).
Late last year, however, regularly scheduled payments for development from Cinemaware suddenly stopped. Being a small team, it is imperative for clickBOOM that work we take makes financial sense. Therefore, our parent company, PXL, had to put development on hold or risk a financially difficult situation when working without payment.
We were willing to work towards a solution and were patiently waiting for payment from Cinemaware which would allow us to continue development. Unfortunately, lack of payment was also followed by 6 weeks of no communication from Cinemaware. It seemed as if they had gone out of business. Not even phone calls were being returned.
In the course of the past 3 months every effort was made on part of PXL to secure voluntary payment from Cinemaware, Inc. However, that has proved to be impossible, so PXL has no other alternative but to file a lawsuit against Cinemaware, Inc. for breach of contract and unpaid development cost.
Even after enduring all of this, it is still our hope that the situation can be resolved, so that we can finish these almost completed games. We believe it would be a shame for players around the world never to enjoy them.
To the many fans who have written and called, we want to say thank you. We will keep you posted." (nba)
