Acclaim's Last Gasp

AcclaimThe Video Game Law Blog mentions that former game publisher Acclaim is making the last circle around the sink before going down the drain for good.  All of its assets have been picked clean and, in some cases, sold to other companies.  The Acclaim name itself is on the auction block for $100,000, and so far a holding company has expressed interest.

Also of note is that the powers-that-be behind Acclaim have let a number of their trademarked properties and licenses lapse.  Check out some of the abandoned properties destined for the public domain:

  • Arena Entertainment
  • Armorines
  • Battle Monsters
  • College Slam
  • Constructor
  • Flying Edge
  • Furfighters
  • Iggy's Reckin' Balls
  • Jinx
  • Juiced
  • Killing Zone
  • Razor
  • Re-Volt
  • Spirit Master
  • Trickstyle

You know what?  If I owned the rights to Iggy's Reckin' Balls I think I'd let it lapse too.
