Starting to leak out now.

Big ups to my friends and former colleagues, it's a tough go of it in the independent studio space.

I'll raise a pork bun this week in your honour.

Awful news if true. I got a lot of enjoyment out of Modnation and LBP Karting on the PS3. I hope everyone can find work again quickly.

Incidentally, where does this leave Smash + Grab? It looked really promising to me.

Guess Smash+Grab didn't work out for them even with the free weekend.

RIP. May they find many a meat bun in their future endeavours.

Oh no! I thought with smash and grab releasing they were at least in a decent place financially. Sad to hear.

What a shame! Sleeping Dogs was one of my favourite B-tier open world games that I hope the GTAs of the world steal some ideas from. I hope those affected can find work elsewhere.

It's unfortunate they had to made Triad Wars, and not Sleeping Dogs 2.

Everyone from the beginning warned them of the misstep they took. The beta was so poorly received that they shut it down, and now along with it, the studio.

That sucks, Sleeping Dog's was one of my favourite games of the last gen. On the other hand releasing an early access game then closing a couple of weeks later seems a little sketchy?
