Hi Shane,
As for the Star Wars game we were developing we had to abandon that
project do to copyright issues. We contacted Lucas Licensing to
legally obtain a license for the Star Wars trademark and characters,
but were turned down. Part of the reason is that Lucas charges
extremely huge royalty fees designed for companies that can sell
millions of units instead of a couple thousand or so. As a result the
kind of money were talking about was millions of U.S. dollars which
USA Games obviously doesn't have.
We have thought about releasing the project as freeware etc, but even
that is risky because if Lucas finds out we released the game without
obtaining a license we could be sued for copyright infringement. As a
result while we have an alpha of the project laying around it is a
serious financial risk to us to release it without obtaining some sort
of permission from Lucas first. That's why the Star Trek game is
effectively in limbo as of this time.
As for downloading Mysteries of the Ancients are you downloading it
from our website or a third-party sight like audiogames.net? We have
tested the links on our website and heading over to
http://www.usagamesinteractive.com/products.php
should take you directly to our products page. From there simply pick
the version for the platform/operating system you are running.
