The long and tumultuous saga of Edge of Twilight continues. Yesterday, developer Fuzzyeyes told Destructoid that rumors concerning the game's cancellation were untrue, but it did confirm that there were severe issues at play. Today, the studio has issued a formal statement on its current status, and it's not pretty.

Fuzzyeyes "let go of the majority of staff" on September 30 after being "confronted with a number of challenges, including economic downturn and some legal complications." The layoffs were the result of a bid to reduce operating costs while the company weathered the current financial storm.

On October 5, Fuzzyeyes started selling shares to a third party and decided to halt all game development while the transaction took place. Until the financial deals are complete, Edge of Twilight has been suspended. Fuzzyeyes has not shut down, however, and the game is still being made. As we confirmed yesterday, game development should restart in the first weeks of 2010, with former employees being invited back.

It's incredibly sad that a studio with a real passion and ambition has to go through such bullsh*t. I really hope this game sees the light of day, and that all these troubles won't harm its quality.

On 30th of September, FUZZYEYES has let go the majority of staffs as FUZZYEYES was confronted with number of challenges, including economic downturn and some legal complications. In order to reduce the operating cost during this problematic time, FUZZYEYES came to a difficult and unfortunate decision to reduce the number of staffs to a minimum.

On 5th of October, FUZZYEYES has struck a deal to sell portion of shares to a third party company. During this transition period, FUZZYEYES will temporarily seize further development on any project. However, FUZZYEYES is still in business and the office is still open. Until the transition is fully settled, FUZZYEYES will suspend all onsite development, but all out sourced development is still on going. FUZZYEYES will be back in full operation after the settlement, and a number of FUZZYEYES ex-employees has been offered a position in early 2010. Further details will be released once the transition has fully completed.

Lu, Wei-Yao
CEO of FUZZYEYES
