Steam users are once again able to purchase Star Control: Origins after the game was blocked from release by its original creators.
Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III, who developed the original two titles, issued DMCA takedown notices against Valve and GOG to prevent Origins from launching, as part of an ongoing dispute with its developer Stardock over copyright for the series.
Stardock had requested a preliminary injunction against the duo, attempting to pre-empt any takedown, but was denied. Ford and Reiche then proceeded to block the release.
However, Stardock CEO Brad Wardell announced via Twitter that the game is once again available on Steam.
When asked whether the game would also return to GOG, Wardell said: "Nothing I can discuss publicly unfortunately. Other than to say that the dispute is Stardock/GOG/Valve on one side and Reiche and Ford on the other."
