It has been just more than a year since SophSoft, Incorporated lost its second founding partner (of three) and I lost my wife of 31 years. In a week, the company will be celebrating its 38th anniversary, and it will continue to develop game software.
During 2019, I took time to reflect on what was really important and what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, and I decided that the plans that Sherry, Rick, and I had devised (and undertaken) as business partners were honest and true representations of what we wanted to achieve. Therefore, I will continue those pursuits, not just out of a sense of loyalty, but because they are why we got into this venture in the first place.
Digital Gamecraft will continue to develop and publish game titles in a variety of genres, and this will be our primary focus. While some of these games may be a little different to what they would have been with my partners to help guide the development, the games will nevertheless embody the spirits of Sherry and Rick to the best of my capabilities.
SophSoft will also continue to do consulting work; however, due to sheer limitations of time, our regular client roster is effectively full. Please feel free to contact us if you are in desperate straits or need our help with a fully-funded project that is right down our alley, but realize that we may not be able to fit you into the schedule. (If you have just an idea, a shoestring budget, or a need for fleet management software, go somewhere else.)
We also have a couple of adjunct projects that I expect to see the full light of day within 2020; announcements will be made here as and when appropriate.
In an industry where companies come and go with a disturbing regularity, remember that we have had the same address for 30 years:
Post Office Box 4936
East Lansing, MI 48826-4936
We have had the same business phone number for 25 years:
Our web site has also been in steady operation since 1995 (though this blog is just a baby at a mere 15 years old). Plus, having been originally founded in 1982…
We are the oldest independent video game company in the world.
I truly appreciate your support as we continue to move forward.
