Big Huge Games Acquired By Curt Schilling's 38 Studios

Curt Schilling's now defunct and bankrupt video game company, 38 Studios, has put 992 pieces of equipment up for auction. The equiptment ranges from computer monitors, to HDMI cables, to wooden desks, to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning t-shirts.

KoA:Reckoning was 38 Studios' first and final game. It was released in February 2012 to mixed reviews, but overall sold well considering it was a new IP. This auction will not deal with the ownership of 38 Studios' intellectual properties.

If you're hoping to furnish your office, or even to own a piece of the fallen game studio, you'll need to register as a bidder and put down $100 as a deposit. Auctions will be held in Maryland and Rhode Island, on October 16, and October 23 respectively. Bidding online will take place through bidspotter.

38 Studios was founded by former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling. After retiring from baseball, he founded Green Monster Games, which later became 38 Studios. In 2010 the state of Rhode Island approved a $75 million dollar loan, in exchange 38 Studios pledged to bring 450 jobs to the state. In May 2012, 38 Studios failed to make a loan payment and by June they had filed bankruptcy. At the time of the studio's closure, they were working on their MMORPG codenamed Project Copernicus. It's unclear at this time what 38 Studios plans to do with their IPs.
