The news article regarding the Mayfair/Lookout situation was a bit off.  The first title is Caverna, Glass Road isn't even a Lookout title.  The older titles won't go to Mayfair until the existing licences expire.

Yes indeed, we got that wrong. Glass Road is published by Feuerland NOT Lookout Games. I think the Uwe Rosenberg connection was what tripped us up.

Thanks for straightening things out. We'll be sure to mention this on the next show.
