Hmmm... the GarageGames site isn't saying anything. Seems like they'd wanna break the news to the community first?

Edit: Oh, there is blip about it on the GarageBlog claiming more details will come tomorrow from Josh.

Fundamentally... did we sell out?
Being perfectly honest, no, we didn't.

I'd love to hear someone actually say:
Yes we sold out. I couldn't sell my shares fast enough. Bring on the cash baby! Can't talk, heading to the beach house in Maui.

I just saw this on gamebiz, was going to post it up here too :)

I hope the Garagegames guys get a good deal out of this. After the Dynamix/sierra thing it was really good to see Gargegames startup.
Best of luck!

P.S. Tribes2 is the bomb

We didn't announce it right away because we didn't want to do one of those vaporware releases you so often see. In most cases, people jump up and down about doing a deal, talk about all the crazy stuff they'll be doing, and then go dark for several months as they scramble to actually get something done.

I have to give him credit on this one and I'm looking forward to those forth coming concrete details.
