This was supposed to be a quick work-for-hire conversion, to help us pay a few bills while we were waiting for NewKidCo to pay the money that they owed us, and find a publisher for Pillage.

We weren't paid a massive amount, but a fair price which would have been good money if we'd done the conversion quickly, but the code ended up taking us months to finish, and we made a small loss in the end.

Still, it was nice to work with the Team 17 guys, and we got to know them pretty well after working together on this title.

 

† Sales Estimates
Almost all sales estimates given are educated guesses. Being lowly developers we rarely had access to the publisher's sales infomation, and in many cases hadno contact with the publisher whatsoever after each game was completed. Even in cases where we were the owners of the development studio and on royalty deals, for various reasonsit was very rare that we received accurate sales figures from the publishers involved. We'd be delighted to correct any errors, or hear more accurate sales figures for any of the titles here.Please email the webmaster if you know something we don't!

Credits
The credits listed are accurate to the best of our recollection, but if we've made any errors or ommissions (quite likely!) please email the webmaster to let us know and we'll try to make a correction as soon as possible.
