After such bad news this is one of the best stories about the games industry I've ever read. Hope everyone is able to find a job out of this.

good, apparently no one at the studio got severance pay :(

Twitter actually being useful for a change... Unless they are just handing out platitudes and not jobs.

it's very easy to send newly laid off people links to your careers page.

actually hiring them is another matter

Yup. Hopefully the people worth their salt get an honest chance.

There's actually a shortage of qualified and experienced game developers out there, so I'm sure its more than platitudes. Of course, not all of them will be hired either through them not applying, or just deciding to do something else.

For the most part, in the game industry, if one works at an established studio and has releases under their belt, and they aren't let go from the studio due to reasons that are their own fault, it's not really that hard to find a job at another studio.

That’s good to hear. Telltale writing would work well with games more focused on gameplay mechanics.
