Developer Two Tribes Goes Out Of Buisness, But Will Start Over With Smaller Team

Two Tribes has announced its closure in the wake of poor sales from its recently released titles. In a blog post on the official website, the Toki Tori developer regretfully announced the departure of their game development and design staff and said that, although they were proud of their achievements as an indie developer, Toki Tori 2′s delay and its lack of sales led to the company’s downfall.

The indie company’s founders Martijn Reuvers and Collin van Ginkel will remain to handle parent company Two Tribes Publishing, which will continue to publish all previous games such as Toki Tori, Edge, and Rush, as well as any future games. Both Reuvers and Ginkel will reboot game development under a new daughter company with a smaller team, focusing on readily available technology.

“We’ve got a ton of hindsight to work with and we’re going to be applying the lessons we learned to the new Two Tribes. Behind the scenes things will change quite a bit. We’ve decided to move away from creating custom technology and focus on what’s readily available. As a result we’ll be working with a much smaller team on our next game, a 2D side scrolling shooter, which will be re-using the existing Toki Tori 2+ engine.

“Our focus will be on the design of our games, which we plan on making more of in less time than before.”

    • If Microsoft went out of Buisness PC’s would suffer a lot and almost EVERY developer on the planet including Nintendo wouldn’t be able to make games lol. As for these guys, they are just making a small studio, much like me they aren’t gone, just changing things up.
