Mimimi Games, a game development studio, recently revealed that their upcoming title, “Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew,” will be their final creation, and the studio will gradually wind down its operations in the coming months.
In a heartfelt message posted on their website, the Mimimi Games team shared their reflections on a 15-year journey in game development, expressing pride in their achievements.
However, the toll taken by the demanding game development process over the years led to a significant personal impact on the team and their families. The studio explained, “After the release of Shadow Gambit we decided it was the right time to prioritize our well-being and to pull the brakes instead of signing up for another multi-year production cycle.”
Continued Support for Shadow Gambit
Mimimi Games has chosen to conclude its journey without embarking on any new game projects. However, the studio is committed to continuing full support for “Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew.”
The team is actively developing a patch for all platforms and plans to introduce more content for the game later in the year. The successful launch of Shadow Gambit has allowed the studio to reward its employees with bonuses as they transition into the next phase.
An Impressive Portfolio
Mimimi Games has left a notable mark in the gaming world with titles like “Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun” and “Desperados 3.” Their final creation, “Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew,” delves into the realm of real-time strategy set during the Golden Age of Piracy, where a curse reanimates the deceased with supernatural abilities.
As Mimimi Games bids farewell, the announcement reflects both the passion that fueled their creative journey and the necessity of prioritizing well-being. Their final game, “Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew,” will stand as a culmination of their dedication to crafting engaging gaming experiences. The legacy of Mimimi Games will continue to live on through their contributions to the world of interactive entertainment.
