Crack dot Com
Overview edit · view history
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.
Games Released (1995 - 2009)
|Abuse (1995 on Linux, DOS, Amiga...)|
- June 1994
Company started as a partnership between Jonathan Clark and Dave Taylor out of an apartment in Mesquite (Dallas), Texas.
- March 1996
Company incorporated and moved into a real office in Austin, Texas.
- October 22nd, 1998
Company announced it is going out of business and released all data & source code for its upcoming Win32/Linux video game title "Golgotha" to the public domain.
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.
