Gearbox wins Homeworld Auction

Photo by Johnny Wallker under a CC-NC-ND 2.0 license I’m cleaning up some open tabs and a story of interest to me is related to the 1999 game Homeworld from Relic Entertainment. Relic Entertainment was bought by THQ in 2004 and THQ went bankrupt this year, auctioning off a lot of old assets, Homeworld included. Six months ago TeamPixel, a small studio, started a Kickstarter campaign to gather support to try and win the rights to Homeworld from the bankruptcy court.
