TriviaIn an e-mail I r'cd from Maurice Molyneaux (an artist who did some work on a few Omnitrend titles), he stated the following, "Omnitrend began doing corporate software and later got into games as well. Eventually, given changes in the industry and the failure of several products due to publisher mishandling, Omnitrend abandoned games, and went back to the business sector, where it remains successful."
