Exclusive news! Perpetual games, the company behind Star Trek Online, is being sued for fraud
While this isn't WAR news, it is huge news for the gaming industry as a whole. Ten Ton Hammer has come into possession of court documents naming Perpetual Entertainment, Inc. as defendant in seven counts of business misconduct, ranging from multiple counts of fraud to material breach of contract to fraudulent transfer of holdings. The plaintiff, Kohnke Communications, alleges that Perpetual transferred valuable assets, including the Star Trek Online license, before liquidating its assets; intending to defraud creditors like Kohnke out of fees for services previously rendered.
"Kohnke alleges that the scheme to defraud Perpetual's creditors goes far deeper than paper transfers to a malformed corporation. According to Kohnke, Perpetual canceled Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising in large part due to the more than $280,000 in incentives that would be owed to Kohnke upon the launch of the moribund game and the subsequent financial impact on the development of Star Trek Online."
