Veteran UK developer The Code Monkeys closed down

After 23 years in business, Yorkshire studio The Code Monkeys has called it quits.

A post on the company's website announced the sad news.

"In the Company's 23rd birthday (1st February 2011), the Directors/Shareholders of The Code Monkeys voted to cease trading. It would've been nice to make the quarter century, but alas..."

The post lists an impressive roll call of local development talent, as well as thanking an amazingly broad range of publishers the team worked with over the years, including Apple, Disney, Konami, Nintendo, Rockstar, and Ubisoft.

The Code Monkeys has focussed almost exclusively on iDevice development in recent years, with occasional forays into downloadable titles for Wii, PSP and PlayStation 3, but its history began in 1988 with the pre-Spectrum ZX81.

Practically every platform in between was graced by the independent developer's output.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
