From what I understand of the system, a development company such as "Cyberlore" comes up with an idea for a game, develops a working prototype of it and then seeks out a financial backer such as microprose to further develop the idea into a working title. This is basically it in a nutshell as far as I know.

Are you familiar with how books are made?

Software publishing works in a similar (but different) way.
A developer (think author) writes the code and a publisher mass-produces and markets the product. This is a gross oversimplification of the process and the relationship between developer and publisher but it gives you a basic idea of who does what.

BTW: The idea for the game can also come from the publisher and they hire a developer to make it.

And Microprose: A publisher with many outstanding titles 5-10 years ago. Was put to rest not long after Majesty (a connection ? ). The "Microprose" on the Majesty box was probably just some sort of quality mark (thats how some people, including me, reacted to the brand) since Hasbro was the true publisher.
