Boku Strategy Games Cancels Contracts With Shrapnel Games

by Rainier on Feb. 1, 2007 @ 1:50 a.m. PST

Boku Strategy Games announced today the termination of all contracts with Shrapnel Games. Boku Strategy Games has full ownership, rights and interest to title such as Horse and Musket, its expansion packs and sequel, Dragoon: The Prussian War Machine, Prussia's Glory, Combat Command 2 series and The War Engine.

All work from Boku Strategy Games on the long delayed release of 82nd Airborne has also been cancelled. "We are sorry to the fans who have been waiting for this release but they are going to have to continue to wait." says Michael Cooney, owner of Boku Strategy Games, "We worked hard on this title for two years, updating it and getting it through beta testing. All that was left was for Tim Brooks to do his bit - create the actual scenarios - and, four years later, we're still waiting. It's time for Boku to move on."

Boku Strategy Games solicited their work on 82nd Airborne to Shrapnel Games but only received an offer of $500. "We find this amount quite bizarre given that over a thousand hours was put into this effort. We have yet to see any monies from our development and would like to ask Shrapnel Games if they ever intended on selling this game after collecting on all the pre-sales", questions Mr. Cooney.

Boku Strategy Games is currently looking for a publisher of their unreleased board game BaseBrawl and plans to announce a long term deal for our current computer games. We will have more news on current and future titles in the near future.
