Boston Globe catches up with former 38 Studios employeesOctober 22nd, 2012 at 5:30 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
The Boston Globe’s Michael Farrell checks in with former employees at Curt Schilling’s video game company five months after they all got laid off:
From the ashes of Curt Schilling’s failed video game company 38 Studios comes Fart Cat.
It’s a simple, irreverent game played on an iPhone involving a cantankerous cat, and is one of the first commercial products made by former employees of 38 Studios after the company’s spectacular collapse in May that put some 400 people out of work.
Stunned and devastated at the time, many of the designers, artists, producers, and computer engineers who worked for Schilling have since rebounded. Some joined similar companies in Massachusetts, adding to the state’s growing game sector; others took offers from big West Coast game studios. And a few, such as the creators of Fart Cat, built new companies from scratch.
