Yeah it was clear from the terms that both sides were a bit out of their depths as far as fitting this sort of thing to the development cycle of video games. Since 38 studios had also run short and was unable to meet payroll even without successfully paying the amount due on the loan though, they would have been in serious trouble even if the terms of the loan had been better fit to the development cycle of their MMO.
