About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

3000 AD vs. Dreamcatcher - Round Two

by Judy on May 18, 2005 @ 4:12 p.m. PDT

Universal Combat: A World Apart went gold on April 15, but several issues with Dreamcatcher, the publishe, have not only held up the boxed retail release of that title, but also led to the termination of the agreement. As a result, rights have reverted back to 3000 AD, who is in the process of negotiating with other parties for the retail rights to this title.

We also recently terminated the Battlecruiser Millennium Gold and Universal Combat agreement which we also had with this publisher. Those rights have also now reverted back to 3000AD Inc and a cease & desist has been issued to Dreamcatcher, advising them to stop any further production and marketing of these two games or face legal action under the DMCA and other copyright infringement laws.

This issue with Dreamcatcher does not affect the e-commerce download version of UCAWA, which we expect to have available within the coming weeks once all the server side preparations have been completed and tested with our e-commerce partners (e.g. Trymedia, BMT Micro and others) who will be carrying the product.
