Lair and Rogue Squadron developer Factor 5 was hard at work on a Superman video game before it contracted a near-fatal case of Brash Entertainment Publishing Agreement Syndrome. This is what that game looked like.
When Brash Entertainment, the plague of a publisher that did serious harm to independent developers industry-wide, gave up the ghost, several projects went with it. That includes one based on DC Comics' The Flash.
Sensory Sweep, the Utah developer that is the subject of a $2 million unpaid-wages federal investigation, denies some allegations levied against it and says they are working out an agreement with investigators.
Lair developer Factor 5 may be the latest to face harsh economic realities, according to a blog from one of its employees. Citing insufficient funding, Factor 5 allegedly had to put one unannounced project on hold.
