Towns developer quits troubled project

City builder Towns was one of the first games to go through the Steam Greenlight process, and one of the first examples of how early access programmes don't always work out - since launching in 2012 the game has been plagued with issues, most of which have remained unfixed. Now, two years since release and with the game still not in a completed state, developer Florian Frankenberger has announced on the official forums that he is leaving the project.

"I hope you are not too disappointed," writes Frankenberger. "And if you are: I'm really sorry. I'm quite new to indie game dev and I couldn't really see that the game sales were declining that rapidly. I guess if I had more experience I would have seen it coming ..." (Industry, PC, Towns)
