If you were a fan of the spooky Cursed Mountain, we have some bad news for you. Developer Deep Silver Vienna has closed its doors after only one game, due to financial issues. Probably because they developed an interesting Wii game, meaning nobody bought it. 

Parent company Koch Media stated that the decision to axe Deep Silver Vienna was not an easy one to make, and has promised to pay the studio's twenty staff until March. It's rumored that co-founder Hannes Seifert has managed to land a gig with Square Enix. 

Another new studio bites the dust. This is what happens when people refuse to buy videogames.
