Two Tribes Undergoes Massive Overhaul
But they’re still in the game
In a recent post on the company website, development/publishing company Two Tribes B.V. released a statement saying that, in the face of very poor game sales, the company is undergoing a full on restructuring that will shift their priorities, but hopefully not the caliber of game they produce. Two Tribes is known for their Toki Tori and EDGE game series as well as several other titles.
In the post, the Two Tribes team says that given the amount of time they spent on making the Toki Tori 2 engine/game when stacked up the the relatively underwhelming sales they got for it, it’s not in the company’s best interest to focus on developing new custom technology at this time.
Instead, the team, which will now be much smaller, is going to focus all of their efforts at once on a new 2D side scrolling shooter project, which will utilize the pre-existing Toki Tori 2 game engine. The main gist of the post is that Two Tribes, while they have been badly shaken up, has no plans to go anywhere or to stop producing great games.
