Crack dot Com
Crack dot Com, co-founded by ex-id Software programmer Dave Taylor, and Jonathan Clark, released the brilliant cult classic Abuse
but, due to bad financial decisions, went bankrupt. They left everything they had done on their second game called "Golgotha" to the public domain, and a group of gamers are finishing it.
The real meaning behind Crack:
We wanted to call the company Crack because it meant neat things, like "crack development team", "crack of lightning," "crack the whip," and "games as addictive as crack". We appended the "dot Com" because it would trivialize trademarking the name and because it was self-referential.
