BUDAPEST, HUNGARYndash; July 30, 2013ndash; Digital Reality (DR), Hungaryrsquo;s best known and oldest video game developer suspended its work on the new Imperium Galactica project, which originally began last February. The decision was made out of purely professional considerations and not due to financial reasons or liquidity, CEO Andraacute;s Peller explained. He highlighted one particular reason, that the development did not proceed in a way that it would have justified the continuation of the project.
DR only suspended the gamersquo;s development, however the firm remains in operation and the owners began discussions about its continuation. The developers involved with the project will most likely work in other areas within the Docler group.
Digital Reality is one of Hungaryrsquo;s longstanding game developer studio. The firmrsquo;s first creation began in 1991 and was published with the title Reunion inrsquo;94. Among its earliest works were the by now legendary Imperium Galactica series or Haegemonia, which were released in more than 60 countries and in several languages. DRrsquo;s greatest hit was Imperium Galactica 2, which was among the Top 10 bestselling games in the U.S. market and won the British Film and Academy Award (BAFTA) in the turn of the millennium.
