Sam & Max 2 WAS NOT CANNED!

Nope. It seems you can't can (ha!) a game when you go out of business.

Infinite Machine is on indefinite leave, so I've heard from an inside source. Makes Mixn'Mojo's "Infinite Machine news item" icon obsolete--well, except from one final appearance.

You are a daring one. I heard it from one lead programmer/designer and one designer.

I suppose that if I was inclined for official corporate jargon I would say that "the firm is looking for new funding resources".

Before THQ (cough) picked up New Legends, Infinite Machine went on without any major financial backing for quite some time...

About that - my best guess is that Infinite Machine was set up to a hostile takeover. Mainly to harvest the talented personnel. It could be that Infinite Machine switched publishers, and therefore had most of its staff replaced. Still, I got a clear message that Infinite Machine is gone.

For the time being, **** my sources. Better wait for a formal announcement.

I italicized it to keep it fresh.

I'm sorry, am I missing something? How is it that they can say it and I can not? I'm fairly certain that this issue was addressed, though not explained, elsewhere. I'm also fairly certain that my not knowing how to properly use the f-word makes me uneducated.

FUCHOW MADNESS!

This is cliche kitty. It's a long story, and not particularly interesting.

Information was released way too early... this always happens.

But then Simon 3D was finished and never published.

Hmm... I'm wondering if that's some sort of an insult against me and my posts. I hope not.

I got the cat picture from here, which is a satire of this. I don't recommend clicking on "this," unless you want to be grossed out, but clicking on "here" is safe.

Considering Infinite Machine has said nothing we could have jumped the gun a little... More waiting to commence.
