Interplay Entertainment, a leading game developer, publisher and licencor from the mid-90’s to the early 2000s, has announced it is selling its entire library of video games IPs and assets.
Among the 70 titles on sale are beloved franchises like Earthworm Jim, Descent, Kingpin, MDK, Messiah, Giants [Citizen Kabuto], Battlechess, Run Like Hell, Sacrifice, Clayfighter, Freespace, and Dark Alliance. These were some heavy hitters back in the day. Personally I see a few titles I really hope will make a comeback following this sale.
“With the proliferation of mobile, augmented reality, virtual reality and other new forms of consumption, we believe that consumers are ready to experience and interact with Interplay’s characters, stories and game play in ways never possible before,” stated Eric Caen, President of Interplay. “We look forward to seeing how this unique portfolio of interactive entertainment icons will evolve for the worldwide audience.”
A VR Descent isn’t a bad idea at all, and I wouldn’t mind seeing Battlechess on my smartphone either.
