Mutazione studio Die Gute Fabrik is halting production

The factory is in danger of closing.

Danish studio Die Gute Fabrik, responsible for indie titles such as the excellently unique indie Mutazione, has announced that the company is halting production of current projects. The studio points to the current “challenging funding and investment scene” in games as the big reason behind the decision.

The studio’s statement goes on to say that the company stopped production on February 19, and used its remaining money to help the team with a month of paid time.

The most important part, however, is that the studio isn’t giving up on trying to find funding to resume production. They’re only issuing this public statement to give a proper signal boost to the team members who are now looking for new jobs. Below the announcement, the studio also shared its hiring sheet.

Die Gute Fabrik says it wishes to resume production if it manages to acquire new funding, though that might not end up coming to fruition.

Die Gute Fabrik has made great games

Die Gute Fabrik actually stands for “The Good Factory”, and it sure was โ€” and hopefully will continue to be โ€” a factory of great games. As mentioned above, Mutazione is a special indie title that many love and that also racked in various awards.

The first thing you’ll notice about Mutazione will likely be its uniquely gorgeous art style, but there’s a lot more to unpack here as you fill the shoes of a teenager navigating a peculiar land inhabited by cute monsters. I’m aware that I made it sound a lot like Undertale, but this is a) very much its own beautiful thing and b) maybe just me trying some subliminal tricks to get you to play this awesome title.

The studio concluded with a tweet saying that both Mutazione and its more recent game, Saltsea Chronicles, will remain on sale and that buying their games is still the best way to support the team.

You have no excuse not to try it out, as you can play Mutazione on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and MacOS. Saltsea Chronicles is available for the PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
