    Remeber when they were like the most promising and coolest company a few years ago? Well they did that new office in LA thing and I guess that didn't work out, here is the news story link. I'm surprised Ausir didn't catch this since he is like the European/Foreign news guy.

    hmm I thought Hammer and Sickle was done by some other company using nival's engine. so much time has passed since the release. was I wrong?

    edit - no I wasn't. it was done by Novic&Co with the mostly technical help from Nival.

    Yeah but if not for Nival's publishing, we wouldn't have had a chance to play it... let alone export it to USA/Europe

    Do you see any difference between a company publishing a promising mod and actually developing and investing into their own titles?
