Europe's confirmed Last Window for an August release, so I doubt it'll suddenly be canceled because CiNG went bankrupt.
Anyway, this is a horrible loss for our industry. CiNG made so many quality titles in such a short span...they will be missed. I'll be tracking down Little King's Story even harder than before, and will buy Again when it comes out on March 30th. Least I can do. If NoA chooses to ignore Last Window, I'll import it. I've never imported, but I WILL for the sequel for one of the best games I've experienced.
Very, very sad indeed. I've hardly seen any video games with stories that are as interesting and intriguing as those of the Another Code and Hotel Dusk series, and I'd be really dejected if Ashley's and Kyle's stories just stopped. I hope for Cing that it goes well at the end. But whatever appears to Cing, Nintendo is the owner of the two said IPs.
Because Nintendo published a load of Cing games and seems to own the publishing rights to Another Code and Hotel Dusk, you should totally have put this in the Contemporary Nintendo forum.
Adventure games don't do well, even the ones that seem to do well don't do well! They hit launch (in Japan and EU anyway) with Another Code which gave them more funding, but rather than sticking to the DS format they poured too much money into the Wii, and nothing sold well... even for adventure games.
Still, I hope Nintendo snatches up some talent from that pool. It would be sad if the Hotel Dusk line ends here... Although I wouldn't miss Ashley Robbins so much. Whiney emo bitch!
Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.
