operations for the time being, and development of Human Element
is "on hiatus,"
(thanks nin). Robotoki is a startup formed by Robert Bowling after
his departure from Infinity
where he served as evangelist for the Call of Duty
series. Human Element
is a zombie game meant to be their debut release, but the announcement
late last year
Robotoki was breaking from publisher Nexon and that Human Element was no longer
planned as a free-to-play title have created the need for additional funding.
Here's the statement from Bowling:
"This week we have ceased operations at
Robotoki and the development of Human Element is on hiatus," Bowling told us in
a statement. "We were actively negotiating a new publishing deal for the premium
version of Human Element but unfortunately I was unable to continue to self-fund
development until a deal was finalized."Update:
The original version of this story repeatedly referred to Human Element as Almost Human. Apologies for the error and the sloppiness.
