Merry xmas which just went by and a happy new year 2018 that is just around the corner!
Something to think about:
Rebel Act Studios opened in 1996.
Severance the blade of darkness which ended up being their only successfull title, was released in february 2001 in both USA and EU-regions. In Spain the game was called Edge of Darkness.
Then Rebel act went belly up soon after even though the game rocked european videogame charts. What a shame!
Much later the game's digital version was released in GOG, but due to publishing contract issues (Codemaster no longer having the rights to publish the game), it was removed from gog and now one can't get it anywhere in legal means. So the status of BOD is once again more or less abdonware.
Yet despite the obstacles the messy publishing rights situation has constantly set, the Bod community just thrives on.
