Team Bondi creative staff are among a slew of other creditors owed big amounts of money following the destruction of the L.A. Noire studio. Over forty people are owed more than $1.4 million (Australian) in collective debt.

Developers in production, gameplay, design and programming -- as well as one intern -- are owed amounts ranging from $1,600 to $99,000. Even the vilified former boss of Bondi, Brendan McNamara, is due $102,000. Oh, and since the company's getting liquidated, there's a good chance nobody will get even a decent fraction of what they're owed.

We hear of studios closing after a failed game, but this goes to show that even a studio with a major worldwide hit can fall apart if handled badly. So, let that be a lesson to you!

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style...more
