update for Unsung Story
has the news that development is
suspended on this planned spiritual successor to Final Fantasy Tactics
). The game was funded about
a year ago
, but hit a
delay a few months ago
to loss of staff, and just a few weeks
highlighted problems with the situation. The new update
follows the same theme of the delay news, blaming staff departures for the
game's issues. They still hope to finish this, but say they will need to enlist
outside help to do so, and they will work on other smaller project in the
meantime. Here's a bit:
After we posted our latest development progress,
we unfortunately lost a few key staff members that were part of Unsung Story
development, and that has had an impact on any progress since then, as well as
our product focus. We now have one internal team capable of working on a single
project, and for the financial strength of the company we need to focus on a few
products in the near term that have the ability to get to a retail release
before Unsung Story is able to. While this is a difficult choice to make, it is
one we need to do for the ongoing financial health of the company. For Unsung
Story, we will explore options for outside development help, and will look to
see if we are able to bring on an outside team that can assist us in furthering
development. While we aren’t assured this will come to fruition, we do want to
make sure that we are exploring any options at hand that can make progress on

新年好 / 新年好! Happy Chinese New Year! Today begins the Year of the Monkey, which is
cool, because monkeys are cool, and this isn't just a monkey, it's a "fire
monkey!" Culturally, this is not as cool as it sounds, however, as this is
apparently considered to be unlucky, so hopefully that's not the case. Anyway, I bet I am still writing Year of the Goat
on my checks for the next couple of weeks.
