Here's what was sold at the 38 Studios asset auction

The 38 Studios auction this week at Heritage Global Partners garnered $320,000 in gross proceeds, according to a statement from court-appointed Receiver Richard J. Land.

Assets for the Rise of Legends and Rise of Nations games and their associated intellectual property were sold, as was the trademark for Big Huge Games. Polygon reached out to obtain information about who purchased the assets and their individual purchase prices, but that information has not been released.

According to Lund, he did not receive "acceptable offers" for Project Copernicus, 38 Studio's massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and Helios, a social media/gaming platform. As Receiver, Land intends to "continue to engage in negotiations with interested parties to sell the remaining assets."

Originally scheduled for mid-November, the auction was moved to Dec. 11 due to higher than expected interest. More than 20 parties were interested in the assets, and five parties participated in the auction, which was conducted over telephone earlier this week.
