Tails Noir developer Eggnut announces closure

"The world is on fire."

Eggnut, the developer behind the Tails Noir games (formerly titled Backbone) has announced that the studio is ceasing operation.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the studio says, “Starting today, Eggnut is halting its operations. This shit sucks.”

The statement goes on to say that the reason behind this decision was complications in securing funding for the development of their next game, which they have been working on for two years. Their remaining budget will go towards assisting the studio’s 15 employees “to regroup, find new jobs, and hopefully continue creating.” They will, however, continue to support the two games in the Tails Noir series.

I reviewed both Backbone and Tails: The Backbone Preludes back when they were released. I remember seeing the change in nomenclature, but I don’t remember finding why. I thought they were decent games. I felt like they got a lot right, but didn’t quite stick the landing, but I was always looking forward to seeing more. It’s unfortunate that the studio won’t be able to return to it.

Eggnut closes the statement by saying, “We’ve been at it since 2017, and it was great to have you by our side. The world is on fire. The game industry is fucked. Call your mom.” I feel that.
