Original People Can Fly Developers Have Flown

Adrian Chmielarz tweets about the current staff at Polish developer People Can Fly, the studio he helped found (thanks DSOGaming). Epic Games acquired a controlling interest in the studio back in 2007, and Adrian explains that by now, none of the original staff remains:
I expect to see a lot of this in the future... TBC: Painkiller/Bulletstorm PCF and #Outriders PCF are almost two different studios. None of the creatives behind the old titles is there anymore. Best of luck to the current team! -- but I just wanted to set the record straight.

Bulletstorm > Painkiller. Painkiller isn't any fun these days. Bulletstorm was, but would have been better had someone not made the call to slow it down.

I worked on and shipped Painkiller back in the day... great title!

And they didn't give you a free copy back then?

loved Painkiller, liked Bulletstorm...both were proof that originality in FPS games exists to some degree.

Another once-storied studio that now exists in name only. Painkiller was pretty awesome when it came out, especially the stake gun and chain grappler. The bosses were pretty cool, too.
