In 1983 there were as many as 3 companies interested in buying out
Funware, those being Activision, Epyx, and Creative Software. As one
might be able to tell from the box scan on this page, Funware was
eventually sold to Creative Software. However, both Epyx and Activision
would later give a go at marketing TI-99/4A games independently near
the end of 1983.
TRIVIA: Schnoz-Ola is the last known
cartridge to be produced by Funware after the Creative Software buyout.
The first cartridge sold by Creative/Funware was St.Nick
and is the only other title known to be sold in the Creative/Funware
yellow packaging. All other Funware titles were released before the
buyout, and therefore sold in different style packaging.
TRIVIA: This game is a clone of
the 1983 Atari arcade Crystal
According to Michael Brouthers, it only cost Funware $4 US to make each
