Spicy Horse Studios Closing

A post on Facebook by American McGee announces the closure of Spicy Horse Studios, with the former id Software designer noting that "it feels like a good time for a radical shift" since the studio was only currently employing six people, down from a peak of 85+. He posted the official press release on the topic, along with personal reflections on the news:

10 years, 10 games, tons of wonderful memories. The Shanghai studio of Spicy Horse Games is closing its doors. The company itself will remain intact, and we'll continue to operate existing games online. At our peak, during development of Alice: Madness Returns, the studio contained 85+ people. These days we're down to just 6, and it feels like a good time for a radical shift.

I'm going to turn my focus to indie development and will continue to publish small titles under the Spicy Horse brand. Much of this work will be done in a challenging new environment - aboard my sailboat, bobbing around the S.E. Asia region. This is also where I'll bring to life Pirate Jam - the game jam on a flotilla of sailboats. I plan to document this new adventure online and in video.

The past 12 years in China have been incredible. I owe so much to the people who helped build Spicy Horse into a happy place to explore and create. To the hundreds of developers who called Spicy Horse home over the years, Thank You. And to the fans and supporters who enjoyed our efforts, Thank You.

Now, to the next adventure! I hope you'll all join me along the way :)

I thought it closed after Alice was released.
