Grimlands Cancels Kickstarter, But Has Funding

Grimlands has had a rocky life, and the game hasn’t even been released yet!

Gamigo Shutting Down Grimlands Development

Gamigo’s upcoming MMO shooter Grimlands has announced that it is setting development.

Launched last year, Black Prophecy is a sci-fi MMO similar to Eve Online but with a more action-oriented control scheme […]

Black Prophecy’s Future In Question

Black Prophecy exploded on to Gamigo’s library of titles as one of the best looking MMOs on the market, even more surprising when you look at the free to play model.
