"After Enric dismissed every idea and core decission from our main art director for the previous projects, he decided to just leave." "Our now former art director is still working in Madrid, now with the Tequila guys making RIME"

Damn, seeing how RIME is looking to be beautiful, if the art design for it is his doing imagine what would have been for LoS 1 & 2. Mercurysteam lost a good employee. Hopefully they change some management, else they'll end up like some of the other companies that have been shutting down lately.

"The vast majority of this team is aware that the game we’ve done is a real piece of shit that has nothing to do with the first one’s quality and production values…"

That really sucks because I was looking forward to the next Castlevania but I have been hearing some awful things about the game.

I've worked at companies just like the one this guy/girl describes at nothing is worse when you get a super star producer who wants to control every aspect of production just to feed his own ego.

The sad part is this guy can now write hos own ticket anywhere because he has a well known franchise on his resume.

"The QA department is treated like cattle, with shameful wages and almost everyday bullying."

My QA days were just like this. You were truly treated as the bottom of the toilet bowel and paid just the same.

Good luck to all these guys.
