Black Widow Games was founded in 1997 to produce contractual game levels and mods for state-of-the-art 3D engines. From 1997 to 2003, the company released 14 contract-work game projects based on the Quake and Half-Life technologies, freely distributed as promotional material for the marketing campaigns of a TV series, game magazine, web news site and a theatrical movie.

In 2004, the level of detail and complexity required for high quality game content increased significantly after the arrival of next generation game engines, mainly UT2003/4, Doom 3, FarCry and Half-Life 2. As a consequence, it finally became impractical for low budget promotional projects to keep competing at the same level with commercial game companies. Instead of reducing its activities and produce less ambitious projects, Black Widow Games decided for the opposite approach and expanded into a commercial company, starting the production of They Hunger: Lost Souls.

He's been reported sick since 2009, when the development on They Hunger: Lost Souls had ceased. There are rumors spread around that Neil had quit or had passed away. Either way, Black Widow Games came to an end.

He didn't pass away. He just stopped doing mods i think. I know that he is OK, but that's all.

Blackwidow Games have been silent for a very, very long time now. I don't want it to be true but I think Lost Souls might be vaporware.

Last thing on their site was on February 7, 2008. Before that was a fair amount of updates on Preview - August 27, 2007. ( The update in 2008 seemed VERY minor and was more pointing out to a press related event. Not soo much development. )

I would really like to see this come out. I just hope it does not become another DNF ( Duke Nukem Forever for those of you who do not know.. yet another game I am disappointed with in terms of what happened to it. )
