I think I would have preferred JAG compared to Stranger Things that they announced months prior.

Only discovered here that they're closing. Rather sad and unexpected, I thought they were going strong.

Yeah, not really sure why they abruptly had to close. I know sales weren't the best but why would they announce multiple projects, unless shareholders just lost interest given the current climate in gaming.

Well, the only one I've played thus far is The Walking Dead - Season One, with Batman and Michonne in my queue of sorts. What has happened is very unfortunate and unexpected. I guess, they refused to be bought out by a bigger company, or the contrary.

Apparently 3 investors backed out the last day which lead to the immediate shut down so I would really like to know what those talks were about and the overall situation.

The way things played out kind of remind me of events of Margin Call.

You should probably add an extra line between:

Go to the Home Page
etc.

Otherwise it will look like this in the poll: Discuss Here Go to the Home Page Vote on more Polls Remain on this Page Forever!!

Just curious... why do you have a link to the IMDb home page in the list?  Pretty redundant since they already exist on every single IMDb page.

Oh, the games usually give you four decision options and I thought it was fitting to have four options there. i just played it safe with the options.
