Interplay has announced it is selling its library of video game assets and intellectual property.
Video game developer and publisher Interplay Entertainment is a name in the industry that will trigger a nostalgic frenzy for many PC gamers. Founded in 1983, the company brought a splattering of classic games for many years. However, that was the past. In more recent years Interplay has hit on hard times, with their last real splash being the sale of the Fallout IP to Bethesda.
Now it’s clear that the once prominent developer is on its way out of the business, with its announcement to sell off all its video games intellectual property which has so far accounted for over 70 released titles.
Here’s a list of the IP up for grabs:
- Battle Chess
- Clay Fighter
- Dark Alliance
- Earthworm Jim
- Redneck Rampage
- Run Like Hell
- T-Rex Rumble
Anyone interested in acquiring Interplay’s IP has been told to get in touch with Joe Morgan at Wedbush Securities.
Sad to see Interplay on its way out the door, but I’m excited to see where all of this IP — some of which is pretty good — ends up.
