In 2001 Daniel Balsom started his project YARN which was shortly renamed to Reinherit. His main goal was to support ITE and eventually IHNM.
In 2003 rights to Inherit the Earth were obtained by "The Wyrmkeep Entertainment Co.".
Same year Daniel abandons his project.
In 2004 ScummVM team adopted reinheirt project which was biting the dust by that time and shorty negotiations with Wyrmkeep were started.
In late 2004 ScummVM team was gladly presented with original source code of ITE and work on it continues.
