Faith and a .45 developer goes bankrupt


Way back in January, we heard that Danish developer Deadline Games had put Faith and a .45, its Bonny and Clide styled shooter set in the Great Depression, on hold because a publisher could not be found. It seems that was a portent of things to come, as Deadline has now filed for bankruptcy. Yes, in a case of situational irony, a developer making a game about a depression can no longer make the game due to a depression.

This news is real bummer. Not only because yet another small developer is closing down, but because I was quite looking forward to see a shooter set in an era that hasn’t already been milked to high heaven. There is a chance that someone else could pick the game up, but it doesn’t seem too likely considering how publishers weren’t showing it any interest.

As of yet, Deadline hasn’t commented if the second episode of its other franchise, Watchmen: The End Is Nigh -- which was set to come out in July -- is still going to be released.
