AM2R Developer Has Been Hired By Moon Studios

It has been an encouraging month for the developer behind AM2R as although his project was hit by a takedown by Nintendo he has now been offered a job with Moon Studios. If you are not familiar with Moon Studios they are the development team behind the well-received 2D Xbox and PC platformer Ori and the Blind Forest. So not a bad outcome for the developer behind the game as the team obviously saw his talent.

  1. Ahh that’s so awesome to hear he’s got a job at Moon Studios!

    I haven’t played Ori and the Blind Forest but I heard
    so many great things about the game (and again at the reaction
    towards the sequel’s announcement) so I know he won’t be disappointed
    working there!

    I wonder what game/games he’ll create from here on. ^-^

      1. Quite indeed. They’re quite protective and old fashioned in many ways. IPs is what they have left to maintain hardware sales, so I get that. But it wouldn’t hurt them to embrace talented individuals like him. If he still wasn’t the best employee, for whatever reason, they would have gained PR. But Ninty doesn’t care about what others think of them. They think they’re unbeatable. Wii U is one example of their ignorance. I love the U though.

  2. We get our Metroid 2 remake, and he gets a job developing games professionally… sounds like things worked out well for everyone.

  3. Wonderful development. Now only if he could swing it anywhere near a Nintendo console … I would love Ori on Nintendo hardware. Blind Forest was more then excellent and for me GOTY when it first released. Looking forward to Will of the Wisps … as I mentioned I would prefer it on the Nintendo Switch but … well probably when hell freezes over.

    Missed opportunity here, NintenD’OH! Maybe he wasn’t Japanese enough for their tastes.

      Or maybe Ninty just likes to hold a grudge against people that spent nearly a decade trying to give us a great game in a franchise they shit over in the last installment with FedshitForce. They still have a long way to go to make up for that travesty. Samus Returns, Metroid Prime 4, & better stock of the Metroid amiibo 2-pack would be a great start. Sadly, only 2 of these are happening.
