Mimimi Games is shutting down. The studio management announced it after the release of Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew. A german developer is shutting down after 15 years of operation.

A large farewell letter from co-founders Dominik Abé and Johannes Roth is dedicated to the reasons for the closure. It is addressed to the community of players, the team, and the whole gaming industry in general.

Among other things, the letter states that future development costs were growing faster than the potential revenue within the genre chosen by the team. At one point, the level of risk reached a critical level for the studio.

In addition, the founders indicate that they found themselves unable to balance work and their families. They no longer have the energy to simultaneously ensure a high level of future products, build a corporate culture, and be directly responsible for management.

The Mimimi Games team is disbanding, the office is looking for new landlords, and the studio’s iron and furniture are looking for new owners.

The studio’s latest game Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew was released a week and a half ago. The game was very warmly welcomed by both users and the press: 94% of reviews on Steam are positive, and the game has 85 out of 100 points on Metacritic.
