The hints he dropped about buying off Sam and Max sequel were premature at least (I am giving him benefit of the doubt that there were some negotiations with LucasArts, which is doubtful in itself). I-jet was a game made up on the spot based on the name of the printer's manufacturer. He even stole the bad brain logo from some random website. I don't think he has any right to preach on "spending your entire capital and three years of your life on a dream".
Also, I thought the quote was from the person PROGRAMMING the game, not the
PUBLISHER that you're on about? Aren't they two different people?

Yes, they are two different people, but Wolfgang was CEO of Bad Brain and the quote was his.

The man behind "the whispered world" is Marco Hüllen. He says that the game is nearly completed (80 - 90%), except for the music and sounds. He was not informed by his boss, Wolfgang, how his game will be treatend in the future. He now has changed his job and has no time nor energy to fight for his game any more.
Look here, if you unterstand german:
statements of Marco:

different opinions about Wolfgang and his behaviour:
http://www.adventure-treff.de/kommentar.php?newsid=2858
Seems to me that Marco was taken to the cleaner by Wolfgang.

Damnit, this game was on my Top Games to Get list. I was absolutely blown away when I played the demo. Tell me where to and I will donate money as well to see this game complete.

Don't suppose anyone's taken the time to translate or paraphrase from those 2 interviews/articles?

Excellent news. I always thought it was a shame this game disappeared when Bad Brain went under.

Marvellous news ... and the other title, 'A New Beginning', sounds excellent too.

This project was dead quite some time, and I gave up hope already, that everyone would take it to process again... luckily, I was wrong! The demo was totally head-banging and outstandingly great! This was the best news in a *long* time

The other outstanding put-on-hold project is the "Our Still Unnamed Project Joe." That game, if anything, has the GREAT potential!

Project Joe.. Yeah!

But I still don't get this quote:
"The Whispered World is and remains int. property of Bad Brain, but the team working on it has been allowed to finish the game and release it as freeware only. They're not allowed to sell it."

How could everything in TWW belong to BB, when that guy finished a lot of stuff before BB came into the picture? And how dare BB say that they're not allowed to sell it? I thought a licence to a product became defunct, if the publisher became defunct?

Good news tho'

I imagine even though BB is defunct they would still, disputebly, be owned by the owner of BB Wolfgang or Wolftrot or whatever he was called.

Presumably he sold the rights on.

This is the same thing that happened to the Discworld games. Even though Perfect 10 and co went under, 'they' still own the rights to the games. Or at least some entity of Perfect 10 still does.

That's a little sad. I though Terry Pratchett owned the license to the Discworld Universe, like Steve Purcell does to the Sam & Max Universe.

Good thing he sold it though.

Pratchett owns the rights to the franchise, so even if Perfect 10 were resurrected, they wouldn't be able to make another Discworld game. But no one could legally produce new copies of Discworld 1 & 2 without the permission/ buying the rights from whoever at Perfect 10 owns it.

I'm not sure what's going on with Noir as I still see it for sale new some places. Can't figure out if someone out there is still publishing it or not.

At least that's how I get it anyhow.

Would be sweet to have another Discworld though. Another case for Lewton would really make my year. Probably decade..........................................In the meantime, there's Whispered World

Wow, this is great news and might be some of the best I have heard this year. I can't tell you how enthused I was after I played the demo presentation and now....you can only imagine how I feel.
