Are we sure it was shutdown or were there just layoffs?

High Moon has one slot open for a junior level engine programmer.

Sorry to hear about this happening to local talent. We had a lot of guys wind up over there after the Deadpool layoffs, and I know several people from Trion wound up over there as well. The San Diego AAA Game Dev scene is shrinking!

Sad to confirm, but the whole studio is looking for work as of yesterday.
As usual, this would be a great place to drop links and referrals to openings for all disciplines.

Thanks for the support Pcount!

All the folks from Molten are invited to IGDA San Deigo's social meetup tomorrow evening at Coin-Op Game Room. Have a pint and play some classic arcade games. It will be a great opportunity to network with other local developers and maybe even find your next career opportunity. Hope to see you guys there!

Oh god, that really blows! Really sorry to hear this.

I'm seriously looking at getting out of games myself. This past year or so has really been a mess. I thought it was volatile before, but this is nuts.

Best of luck to all affected by this.
