We all knew it was coming, but that doesn't make StarLite's
cancellation hurt any less. The developers behind the unofficial DS port of StarCraft
have taken down all traces of the homebrew
game, apologizing with a short note: "For legal reasons, we must abandon this project."
It's no mystery what transpired -- Blizzard's lawyers
sent a Cease and Desist letter to the aspiring programmers, just
after they released an update to the RTS with multiplayer support
. It was fun while it lasted, wasn't it?
"Didn't we almost have it all?
When love was all we had worth giving?
The ride with you was worth the fall, my friend.
Loving you makes life worth living.
Didn't we almost have it all?"
