Konhke Reaches A Deal with Perpetual Entertainment; Stops Suing

It has been reported that Konhke has dropped it's lawsuit against Perpetual Entertainment after they reached a deal. PE managed to drop in their view that the legal action was "vague, uncertain, ambiguous and unintelligible" before the deal was reached and both parties agreed to shut up about it, making sure they had the last 'nyah nyah nyah' on the issue.

If I were in Konhke's shoes (which I'm not) I probably would have taken any reasonable deal that PE offered - getting something to cover the cost of work done would probably be more important than getting the potential extra payment if Gods and Heroes had shipped. It would also probably be a better bet to take the money now than to wait and see what PE does next.

PE has become a MMO development studio with no announced games and a MMO middleware platform with only one announced client (Bioware). While the STO license may have been sold to a third party (again, I haven't seen any concrete information about the 'why' surrounding the sale) it would be a short-term capital boost. If PE had looked to really rake in the money from STO, then Kohnke may have looked to hold out for the full amount detailed in their original filing. As is, given PE's currently publicly known situation, I don't think they look too healthy.

On a side note, Perpetual Entertainment's website is down to only a homepage and an email address. You can't even look at info on PE's middleware platform. Take the money and run, Kohnke.
