It's a rumor, and I don't have any connection to the company in question, but it's perhaps of interest to given their casual connection. That and Fate was a cool game . Anyways, the rumor says that Wild Tangent recently "axed" 40 employees. That by itself doesn't give a clear picture of the future of the company, but 40 *is* a lot. Now, if it was any other company working on console or mobile games, or a UK developer , I would scoff it off as the slow demise of a company. However, they're quite involved in casual gaming, even speaking at the Casual Games Conference. They're also on Microsoft's Live Arcade partners list. I recall some conversation (or history) on how Reflexive cut the company down to a minimum before going full force in the casual gaming market, and we all know how that turned out. Same deal here perhaps? Was Fate a success? Or did Fate frown on them instead? (pun intended ) Discuss.
