Edge Of Twilight Dev Confirms Job Cuts
A statement issued by studio CEO Lu, Wei-Yao dates the on-going problems the South Brisbane-based indie has faced since September:
"On 30th of September, FUZZYEYES let go the majority of staff as FUZZYEYES was confronted with a number of challenges, including economic downturn and some legal complications. In order to reduce the operating cost during this problematic time, FUZZYEYES came to a difficult and unfortunate decision to reduce the number of staff to a minimum."
"On 5th of October, FUZZYEYES struck a deal to sell a portion of shares to a third party company. During this transition period, FUZZYEYES will temporarily cease further development on any project. However, FUZZYEYES is still in business and the office is still open. Until the transition is fully settled, FUZZYEYES will suspend all onsite development, but all out-sourced development is still on going. FUZZYEYES will be back in full operation after the settlement, and a number of FUZZYEYES ex-employees have been offered a position in early 2010. Further details will be released once the transition has fully completed."
So the fantasy-steampunk title isn't dead as first thought – but it certainly isn't in great shape either. Let's hope Fuzzyeyes' fortunes improve in the new year, while browsing the lovely Edge of Twilight images below…
