Computers, desks, chairs and other office equipment and items that belonged to the now-defunct Big Huge Games, a Timonium-based video game maker, will be auctioned Tuesday as part of the company's Chapter 7 bankruptcy and liquidation.

Big Huge Games was a part of 38 Studios LLC, a Providence, R.I.-based video game company owned by former professional baseball player Curt Schilling. The firm ran out of money and shut down in May, tossing hundreds of people out of work, including about 100 in Timonium.

When it filed for bankruptcy in June, the company listed more than $150 million in liabilities and $21 million in assets.

The Timonium auction will be held at Big Huge Games' former offices, 1954 Greenspring Drive, at 9 a.m. S.J. Corio Co. of Warwick, R.I., will handle the auction in Timonium and a similar one for 38 Studios in Rhode Island the following week.
