Due to a lack of AVWW money taking I just grabbed a boxed copy of AI War. Well, mostly because I wanted a boxed copy of that.

Cool stuff!  In what country?  I guess Germany, most likely.  The sad thing with boxed copies in that country is that we actually got paid $0 for all of that because the publisher went bankrupt before paying us a cent.  Go figure!  But I'm always glad for people to get a boxed copy of that game, because it's just cool having it be in stores, etc.

Tidalis in Germany, on the other hand -- that directly supports us as that publisher is still doing well!

Not that I'm really suggesting anything at all -- really, I'm not.  But since you mentioned it I thought I'd mention that as sort of a point of interest.

If only we had an AVWW beta to play this weekend. Waiting (almost) patiently!

Wow, that's lame. Who ends up with the money from those sales then? The publisher's bankruptcy lawyer?

Or whatever final bills they did wind up paying before giving up trying to pay, or the stockholders or whatever.  Hard to say, really.  Suffice it to say that there's some argument for defining economic turmoil as "when people can/will no longer honor their previous agreements".

Other people they owe money to wind up collecting, I think.  Bigger ones tend to win out first.  The investors are likely just as hosed as us.
