Rhode Island nets $713,000 from ongoing Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sales
Revenue from Steam sales of 2012 role-playing game have reached six figures for the Ocean State.
The figure references cumulative revenue from ongoing sales of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning made through Valve's digital distribution hub Steam and not physical copies of the game.
The state's lawyer, Richard Land of Chace Ruttenberg & Freedman, explained that Electronic Arts--which originally published Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning through its EA Partners program--continues to have the right to sell the game and earn revenue.
The $713,000 figure was first reported by the Providence Journal. It is in addition to the $430,000 raised from auctions of computers, office furniture, and various other wares left over after 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy last May.
Rhode Island acquired various Amalur assets in August, including 38 Studios' unreleased massively multiplayer online game codenamed Copernicus. The state is now trying to sell those assets, and according to comments from Land in May, "there is interest" in them.
The state currently faces over $100 million in debt as a result of 38 Studios' bankruptcy. In addition to selling the company's assets, the state is suing founder Curt Schilling and other architects of the controversial $75 million loan that enticed the studio to relocate from Massachusetts to Rhode Island in 2010.
