OverviewFenris Wolf was founded in Minnesota in the early 1990's by Theodore Beale and Andrew Lunstad. They published two PC games in the Rebel Moon series. Fenris Wolf closed in 1999 as a result of a legal dispute with GT Interactive during the development of the third Rebel Moon game.
|Rebel Moon Rising||(1997)|
TriviaThe company sued their former publisher GT Interactive Software Corp. over the game Rebel Moon Revolution in February 1999, alleging breach of contract and interference with contractual relations, and seeking $1.7 million in damages. Fenris Wolf had a contract for Rebel Moon Rising, but it went wrong for Revolution. They claim to have made eight milestones on the project, but that GT rejected the ninth on 15th October, 1998. Normally, a developer has 30 days to correct the mistakes and deliver a new milestone, but Fenris Wolf claims GT refused to communicate about the ninth milestone. When Fenris delivered a second ninth milestone in time, it was rejected again and GT then waited another month (breach of contract) to cancel the game. At that point, they offered the developer to make the game for free, at which point Fenris Wolf went to court.
GT, on the other hand, claims that Fenris Wolf failed to deliver on the ninth milestone, and when it was given options in terms of how to improve, the developer filed a lawsuit.
