We’ve been holding off for a while to post an official statement in regards to the recent events revolving around the title “The Other Brothers”. At this point, we have the following public statement for release:
This is a declaration of intent to put any / or all parties involved in the development, production, marketing, distribution, and/or sale of “The Other Brothers” title or any derivative of such work on notice. Should this title reach market distribution, we will assert our legal rights to the intellectual property and/or any profit sharing agreements in place prior.
Obviously, we’re not too happy about what happened, and its quite clear that the ‘newly formed‘ team does not want the details of what happened to come to light either (DMCA notices, ”nasty grams”, a wife calling our office).
Unfortunately, their original decision to cancel the game when they heard we would be asserting our rights was probably the best decision. While it meant the ‘journey’ was over, it meant no disputes.
Moving forward we will be removing “The Other Brothers” from our game list, and we will continue to monitor the development of the title and make sure to assert our rights should they bring a product to market.
