Today I found out the studio I work at is shutting down and that layoffs are on the way.

There's a lot of studio closures and layoffs in the game industry. It can feel like we're yet another headline in a sea of headlines.

So, while the attention is on the Tectonic studio, I wanted to say my piece.

Here goes:

🙏 TO THE TEAM

Thank you to all the teammates I worked with in the trenches at Tectonic. Thank you for teaching me patience and resilience.

Thank you for sending flowers when a loved one passed and celebrating with me for the birth of my child. It meant the world to me.

Thank you for teaching me hard things. Thank you for fixing my messy scripts. Thank you for giving me feedback and critiques.

Thank you for showing me better ways to do things.

Thank you for supporting my ideas and allowing me to collaborate on yours.

Thank you for continuing to work on the game, even on this day.

🙌 TO THE PLAYERS

Thank you for supporting Life By You.

Thank you for your direct and honest feedback. It changed the game for the better, when our voices alone couldn't.

Thank you for all of your input. It helped us advocate for the changes we believed in.

Thank you for welcoming us into the Life Simulation community with open arms. What a beautiful and diverse group of fans.

Thank you for giving us the chance to build this game for you. I hope that one day you will get to experience it for yourself.


If you need great talent to join your game studio, look no further than the fine folk at Paradox Tectonic.

Thank you!
