Two Tribes Reboots

Dutch developer Two Tribes announces that during the last two months of 2013 their office has been mostly empty, and that the "old Two Tribes, founded in 2001, doesn’t exist anymore and we had to send everyone home." They explain that their transition to indie developer was difficult, and that delays and weaker-than-expected sales of Toki Tori 2 "basically took the company down." This all said, they announce they are rebooting:

For the outside world nothing much will change. Two Tribes Publishing is still in good shape and all our previous games will remain for sale. With the support of you, our players, the games will supply the funding for our new titles which will be released under the Two Tribes name.

We’ve got a ton of hindsight to work with and we’re going to be applying the lessons we learned to the new Two Tribes. Behind the scenes things will change quite a bit. We’ve decided to move away from creating custom technology and focus on what’s readily available. As a result we’ll be working with a much smaller team on our next game, a 2D side scrolling shooter, which will be re-using the existing Toki Tori 2+ engine.

Our focus will be on the design of our games, which we plan on making more of in less time than before.
