If only Atari owned the rights to the words "Star Control" through Legend, and forgot to transfer those rights before dissolving Legend.   :-/

Well, I'll mourn.  But not for SC3.  Their Eric The Unready was one of the last of the great commercial parser-based adventures.  (It's not quite a text adventure, since there's heavy use of graphics, but it's pretty close.)

I really miss parser adventures;  There always seemed like there was more you could do instead of "click object #24 onto stationary but high-lightable background #32".

I personally like their Descent games. So I will weep.  :'(

Hrm?  I think I missed a merger somewhere.  Descent was developed by Parallax, and published by Interplay.  Where does that connect to Legend?

(I, too, loved Descent -- it spoiled me on FPSen forever.  "Where's the slide-up key?")

Oops - my bad - Descent was made by interplay.   :D

Yep - Me and descent had may good days together! (and still do)
