We know that you've probably been racked by worry since it was revealed last week that WildTangent, developer of the pseudo-successful Fate
(and alleged spyware distributor
), would be closing its internal studios
-- however, the company hasn't quite kicked the bucket. Its digital distribution platform, Orb (which former CEO Alex. St. John assured us would eventually replace the modern gaming console
) is still in operation -- moreover, its catalog was recently bolstered as a result of a deal between WildTangent and UK developer Kalypso Media.
Kalypso, best known for its strategy title Sins of a Solar Empire
, has given WildTangent the right to digitally distribute their entire back catalog
, as well as the right to distribute all future titles they develop. Sure, it's not a giant step towards St. John's promised revolution, but it may be enough to keep the Grim Reaper from darkening WildTangent's doorstep for a while.
