Farewell From ShadeDev

ShadeDevShadeDev Member, Robot Entertainment, Early Access, Apprentice Founder, Featured Developer
Hey guys,

As you may know, many people were affected by layoffs at Robot Entertainment, including myself.

I just wanted to take a moment and say "thank you" to all of you.  Robot Entertainment and Orcs Must Die will forever be a part of my memory.  The conversations I have had with many of you truly show the level of passion you have had for our work.

While I do not know exactly what will be my next road travelled, you can follow me on Twitter at @ShadeGameDev.

You guys are awesome.

-Doug (ShadeDev)

  • Thanks, every since I first chatted with you on the gameforge forums 2 years ago you have been helpful to this fan base.
    Keep it secret, Keep it safe.
    New? Here are some Game Tipz.
  • Best of luck to you.
  • Cheers! Best of luck, man. Pleasure chatting with you for the last couple years. :)
  • I feel sorry for you man, getting the boot just like that and at no fault of you own. I wish you luck on finding a new job.

    Damn, you too? You were the most community oriented dev and always gave great insight into the game's development. I sincerely hope you find something better.
    Makes me think, if you're gone, and even nana got laid off, who's left?

    I think there are maybe 2 people left that keep the server running and that's it

    There are a number of people at the studio, there is another game in development. You can find the staff list on the Robot Entertainment website.

    Bah.  The press release said the layoffs happened because they cancelled their new game. There was nothing about devs working on their old games being laid off in it.  Although I suppose we all knew what the truth was.

    Farewell ShadeDev.  I guess that means there's probably only like, 0 developers producing new content for OMDU now.
