never really stopped publishing video games, but it was a very real possibility after its troubles last year. Following the disappointing sales of its banner titles, Psychonauts
and Advent Rising
, stock values
plummeted, CEO Carl Yankowski resigned, and several class-action lawsuits were filed by the company's shareholders. Majesco decided to turn its focus on "value and handheld video games," and has been slowly recovering from its losses with this strategy.
So why should we be cheering on the company that brought us throwaway games like F-24 Stealth Fighter
and Super Black Bass Fishing
? While you're right to shake your head at those titles, Majesco was also the publisher behind niche gems for the DS like Nanostray
, Age of Empires: The Age of Kings
, and Cooking Mama
. And for that, we wish them the best of luck.
