Lawsuits aren't necessarily a fact of life in the world of video games, but they seem to be a bit favored over words when two parties just can't seem to get along
. David Allen
, the gentleman formerly in charge of Alganon
's development, has opted for legal action
in the matter of his removal from the company, which was followed by Derek Smart
taking his position. While Smart has responded to Allen on his personal blog
, Quest Online
has taken the opportunity to attempt to put the record straight in a more official capacity
According to the official statement, "the company's members, forced to make a decision between David Allen and Derek Smart, unanimously voted to remove Mr. Allen as managing member thereby leaving Derek Smart as President of the company."
Those who have been following the debate since the beginning will note that this matches Smart's depiction of events. The company states that it will defend itself against untrue allegations by Mr. Allen, and that they are confident the courts will see that there were no unfair actions taken on their part. The unfolding legal drama
certainly has succeeded in stirring up more interest in Alganon
, but only time will tell how the legal side will play out.
