TIMONIUM, Md. — Computer towers once used by 38 Studios employees are lined up in neat rows, tagged and ready for sale. A hand-recognition security system and sleek touchscreen tablets are on the block, too, poignant reminders of the high-tech ambitions the company once fostered. A pool table where employees might have idled away time while brainstorming ideas can be had for a price, not to mention Xbox 360 and Wii consoles and shelves of video games.
The products, from expensive technology to mundane office knick-knacks, helped lay the foundation of 38 Studios, the video game company founded by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling that was once promising but now is in bankruptcy.
