Foundation 9 recently announced a merger with Amaze Entertainment, which will make them the world's largest independent game developer. Guess they were really impressed with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
F9E has been on a roll lately; their now-massive katamari recently picked up Shiny Entertainment as well. Now that F9E has so much muscle to throw around, we can only hope they will use their powers for good ... and maybe a few less licensed games. Then again, previews for Eragon
haven't been terribly atrocious, so perhaps there's hope for this new combined power yet.
