More Company Layoffs, Closings

layoffsWe all know the economy has taking a turn for the worst over the last year.  So it’s not surprise that more companies have shut down and laid off employees.

The most recent headlines…

Idol Minds the developer behind the down loadable PS3 game “Pain” recently cut half of it’s staff members.  Inside information states the reason for this lay off was due to “Sony budget cuts”.  It’s sad since Idol Minds has been in business for 11 years and their game “Pain” was the most downloaded PSN game as of January 2009.  It’s really so sad to hear.

Then there is Transmission Games.  An Australian based developer known for games such as Heroes Over The Pacific.  They completely shut their doors.  Going from over 135 employees to nothing.  Considering this company has been around for 12 years, it just goes to tell you that no one is safe.

I know all this dread and what can you do?  You can still find game jobs.  They are out there.  I can’t tell you how many companies exist and in an economy like this one there are bound to be losers.
