TriviaShortly after publishing the product "Argus Press Software" went bust and restarted as "Grand Slam Entertainment" having somehow transferred the copyright, licenses and assets from Argus to Grand Slam just before liquidation, thus avoiding paying debts and royalties related to this and other products!!! So as usual the small developer suffers so that rich immoral publishers can cheat them out of their hard earned rewards. (Note: The contributor of this information was also one of the primary developers. --Editor)
