Though many of us delve into computer games for a brief respite from the vagaries of reality, the world of business has a way of creeping into every facet of life. The business of putting games on store shelves is fraught with risk. New developers appear, and old developers vanish. For example, Kalisto, an independent French Developer responsible for titles such as Nightmare Creatures, filed for bankruptcy in February and was ordered to liquidate (close shop and sell off all their assets) by a French court. Maximum Charisma, developer of the ill-fated online game Fighting Legends, disappeared in a rumored bankruptcy. Development teams are often disbanded upon the completion of a project.
