I assume they've closed up shop, as they haven't released anything new, nor even responded to inquiries, in years. Just curious what happened and why.

I don't now, but I guess they ran out of money. They never took off in the way they intended to. The initial idea was to publish 32 (or so) games in their first few months of operation. I'm not sure they released that many in total. They did, however, announce tons of games that never saw the light of day. I think I saw catalog numbers up to 114 or so.

I didn't play many of their games, but they just didn't appeal to me for the most part.

A few years back Bucephalus did a guaranteed sales program with stores. When everyone failed to sell all the games, they attempted to change the return program.

The next thing I knew, they were gone.
