Schilling Loan Shaved

September 8, 2010 -

Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios will have to make do with just a $51 million loan from Rhode Island’s Economic Development Corporation (EDC), as around one-third of the original loan amount of $75 million will be held aside for three years worth of repayments on the debt.

WPRI.com reported the news, citing a fact sheet issued by the EDC. After issuing the document, an EDC spokesperson indicated that the organization would no longer speak to reporters about the deal until it was finally closed.

While there was no mention of whether or not 38 Studios might eventually receive the $20 million or so being held aside, it was reported that, if approved, the deal would see 38 Studios receive $13 million right away, with another $38 million dispersed over the next 15 months, providing Schilling’s company meets certain goals and criteria.

Another “success fee” of between $15.3 and $18.8 million could be earned by 38 Studios, though no mention of terms and/or conditions were on the EDC fact sheet.

38 Studios also has until November 30th to find its new home, after which it must sign an enforceable 10-year lease.

The EDC loan helped lure Schilling and 38 Studios from their current Massachusetts home to neighboring Rhode Island and raised the ire of just about every politician in the Ocean State.

Andrew EisenI disagree for the reasons, well, for the reasons Sarkeesian states in her video. Also, as she points out, the lack of specific gender identifiers is part of why she's a positive example of female representation in video games.05/05/2015 - 1:22pm
WonderkarpWell its about GD Time She presented a good Positive Female Character. Scythian is an awful example. a emotionless blob of pixels that I couldnt tell you was female without a guide. In comparison Samus out of suit made in the 80s is far more noticeable05/05/2015 - 1:18pm
Andrew EisenSarkeesian tossed us a change up with the Scythian but the next Positive Female Characters episode looks to cover BG&E's Jade! https://twitter.com/femfreq/status/59425534635858739305/05/2015 - 1:14pm

Andrew EisenCurious to see who readers would want in a debate, I read the first few dozen comments and there are almost NO suggestions for GamerGate reps to debate. Sarkeesian pops up a couple times but she's not a games journalist.05/05/2015 - 12:11pm
Andrew EisenI've had discussions with a whole bunch of folks who identify as GamerGaters and, with a handful of exceptions on Twitter and Youtube, they were all reasonably polite and civil.05/05/2015 - 12:06pm
Wonderkarpmeet any of these "hornets" you profess to say surround me, I would be in Jail for Assault.05/05/2015 - 11:53am
WonderkarpI'll say this, Mecha. I've met a large number of people who support gamergate. None of them have come off as trollish aHole who want to see actual harm to anybody. They're all good people who have donated a good amount of money for Charity. If I were to05/05/2015 - 11:52am

MechaCrashRemember when I said I oughta call you Jimmy Hornets? http://chainsawsuit.com/comic/2014/10/24/good-old-jim-hornets/ This is kinda relevant to the SPJ hashtag thing!05/05/2015 - 11:28am
Andrew EisenKarp - Come on, dude. That was obviously paraphrasing. Anyway, thanks to both of you for the links. Really interesting stuff that I look forward to watching unfold.05/05/2015 - 11:26am
WonderkarpRight. That quote is nowhere in the articles I linked below.05/05/2015 - 11:24am
MechaCrashYour articles say what mine did: "there were a few good points but they were lost in the flood of toxicity."05/05/2015 - 11:20am
WonderkarpYou mean wanting to engage in a conversation? which is what is happening, http://journoterrorist.com/airplay/ http://journoterrorist.com/2015/05/04/gamergate/ I hope you give these 2 a very good read. 05/05/2015 - 11:07am
MechaCrashhttp://blogs.spjnetwork.org/ethics/ The SPJ had to abandon the tag when GGers got all Gater-y.05/05/2015 - 10:34am
MechaCrashHey, speaking of GG, there was a thing on Twitter by the Society of Professional Journalists about ethics! Gaters found it and they had a calm and rational discussion about their concerns re: the video game industry! Oh wait, no, that's not what happened.05/05/2015 - 10:34am

MattsworknameOn some days conster, i've wanted to rip into subjects like theres no tomarow, but some times, it's just not the time for it.05/05/2015 - 6:00am
MattsworknameConster, thats fine, and I understand what your saying, Im just saying that right now, baltimoore it not a subject to get into right now.05/05/2015 - 5:59am
ConsterMy comment was meant as "maybe people have done less hateful things 'in the name of GG' lately because they've moved on to other hateful activities", not a dig at GG itself.05/05/2015 - 4:29am
