(updating the other thread as well)
I have received an official invitation to bid for the IP. Unfortunately due to the time frames involved, an Indiegogo or Kickstarter campaign would be very difficult, since they would payout later than Oct 17th, which is when the company requires for this entire thing to be closed. There is also the very good chance that Interplay can simply outright refuse to sell the entire rights should we make a bid.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0moObeV64NAQWJwcDZWc20tazQ/view?usp=sharing
I am going to attempt to make a bid anyway. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the sources of where I'm getting funding from, it makes things a bit complicated in regards to what I can do with it over the long term, since I would need to recoup the initial cost. It is very likely under such an arrangement that the goal would be to put these games on steam or Good Old Games in some form at a reasonable price and gradually recoup the initial cost that way. However that is assuming such a bid be successful, which is likely to not be. We shall see.
If anyone wishes to help, I need a firm commitment
towards this. I cannot place a bid, then should it by some grace of Cthulhu become successful, not have the funds available at all. I cannot however ask for help morally without pointing out the fact that any initial costings (especially for legal fees, contract courier costs, etc) would be recouped and putting things into open domain may not work immediately to that.
