Mimimi Games, developer of Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, Desperados 3, and the recently released Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew, is winding down. The studio announced that Shadow Gambit was its last game and will begin “slowly ramping down” over the next few months.

On its official site, creative director Dominik Abé and CEO Johannes Roth (who also founded the company) revealed that “Dedicating the past decade and a half of our lives working on increasingly ambitious games took a heavy personal toll on us and our families. After the release of Shadow Gambit, we decided it was the right time to prioritize our well-being and to pull the brakes instead of signing up for another multi-year production cycle.”

Shadow Gambit will continue to receive support with a new patch in the works for all platforms. There’s also a big content drop coming later this year. Despite the sudden announcement, the development team was informed before the same. Abé and Roth are currently “doing everything in our power to support our team,” including reaching out to industry friends for new jobs.

Thankfully, Shadow Gambit’s launch allowed for bonuses to all employees during this transition. Abé and Roth thanked its developers, community, peers and publishers like THQ Nordic, Daedalic Entertainment and Kowloon Nights.

Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Check out our review here.
