I'm the only one who thinks it disappointing that Introversion is going out of buisness?  Afteall they brought us such a great game with uplink.  And now before the can even release there 2nd game they have decided shutdown and go their seperate ways.

More likely from his cousin's roommate's ex-girlfriend's best friend's father's voices in his head...

Ha! ha ha ha. What a pile of poo.

It seems strange that a "company" that sells it's own game that had the production value of "oh! I'd better code more of that game, and stay away from the Uni bar", would break up because of money difficulties. While continuing to sell a computer game at a healthy(?) profit, and now in the big ol' USofA.

Maybe the bandwidth this forum uses up is eating into their profits? Betterstartleavinoutspacesandpuntuation&StrtLvngVwls2SvBndWdth

If they were to break-up, or not release their second game I doubt it would be because of money. Unless they squandered it all! (fast cars and faster women, I bet.)

I hear the game is going to include lots of waring smileys.

Of course, that was just one I thought up myself, since this topic is going in the way of silly rumors.
