A bit sad, they couldn't marketed it much ...
It's hard for me to get my head around why a publisher would fund a high quality port, but then leave it to die with no marketing. Something must have changed between the time they okay-ed and budgeted for the porting work and the time it wrapped up. I can't imagine that they would have planned it like this from the start.
