A post on GOG.com by Stardock's Brad Wardell adds a twist to the Star Control brouhaha which recently bubbled up (thanks Rollory). Stardock and Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III are engaged in a dispute over what aspects of the series are actually owned by which entity. Stardock purchased the game's name (at the very least) in 2013 as part of an Atari fire sale, but Reiche and Ford claimed they possessed the rights to sell the original two DOS Star Control games they co-developed. This morning we reported that Paul and Fred (aka Toys for Bob) claimed they removed the sci-fi action/strategy series from GOG.com of their own volition (no wait, that was a different fire sale) as a maneuver in this battle. Now Wardell says Stardock actually instigated the removal of the Star Control games so they could sell them there themselves, and in a later post the Stardock CEO says the games are now back on GOG.com being sold by Stardock, which lends credibility to his side of the story. Here's the post that preceded the reappearance of the series:
