It appears that Atlantis Games, formerly Enigma Miniature, may no longer be in business. Richard Lloyd, who was developing Fantasy Strike on behalf of Atlantis Games, reports in a post to rec.games.miniatures.misc that "Atlantis Games has gone out of business."

This confirms a report published in issue #7 of the B.R.Snasis Games Newsletter, published online by retailer B.R.Snasis:

It appears that Enigma Miniature has gone out of business. Repeated e-mails to the owner have been returned as undeliverable. A check with organizations he was known to belong to turned up nobody who'd seen him in a couple of months, and rumors of the company's demise. So what I have is what I have, and when they are gone they are gone. This saddens me, partly because Enigma made some good, heavy, old fashioned minis, and partly because they were the first company I actually dealt "direct" with. Ah, nostalgia!

We can confirm that the company's email address is no longer active. The Atlantis Games website is still online, but the last signs of life there are the announced releases for October 1999. The company's owner formerly was an active poster on Usenet, but he has failed to respond (since 25 January 2000) to a post asking if he is still in business.

According to DejaNews, company owner Denis has not posted to Usenet since October 14th, 1999. The last communication we received from him was dated 2 November 1999, and contained a list of new releases (no mention of any troubles at the company).
