Sources said Friday that Digital Domain last week told staffers working on the CD-ROM title “The Book of Virtues” for IBM that the project had been shut down.
IBM had previously announced plans for a slate of CD-ROM titles, but those plans have been dramatically scaled back. Sources said the individuals working on the “The Book of Virtues” at Digital Domain were on board for only that project, and were not full-time staffers.
Sources said Digital Domain continues working with Mattel on a number of interactive titles. It was instrumental in the development of Mattel’s hit CD-ROM “Barbie Fashion Designer.”
