The Day The Movies Died
Apparently. To be honest I've known this was going to happen for a long time. The sheer number of people employed at my old job was insane. The amount of work that was routinely thrown in the bin... I saw people work for six months to discover their whole body of work had been binned in the latest redesign.
The amount of AI code for the movies that was thrown away, the love affairs, the jealousy, the animals that wandered the lot, the aliens that beamed down and zapped your stars, the cows that wandered onto the lot and had to be herded, the security guards chasing the paparazzi around, the 523,456,895 different versions of every single building that the artists made before anyone decided what the final ones looked like, the improved explosions, the challenge system, the tutorials, the improved scene filtering, all thrown away on a whim by people who didn't even bother to play the game first.
Pretty much everyone could see this coming a long time ago... But it's still sad, because I know some good people working there. Hopefully things will work out well for them, whatever happens.
On the upside, Kudos is coming along wonderfully.
