Report – 38 Studios staffer’s family in dire straits after closure

Thursday, 14 June 2012 04:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Head on over to Gamasutra to read a personal account of a family affected by the closure of 38 Studios. The anonymously published but reportedly verified account exposes some dodgy treatment of staff including broken promises, long hours, poor information flow and even some shady-sounding contractual details which may leave the author with a poor credit rating. The story of the Kingdoms of Amalur developer’s shut down is a complicated and unhappy one indeed, with suggestions the company was sold out by Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chaffee. Hopefully affected staff are as fortunate as the new team at Epic Baltimore.
