Awful to hear about Telltale's closure. Like many of us, I've also been there without a cheque for the end of the month. It's insanely stressful. :( Insomniac is hiring. If you have questions - feel free to reach out. https://insomniac.games/careers/ #TelltaleJobs

Some of their writers would fit right in at Sony with their oft superb focus on narrative/story based games, which is why I am pleased to see the likes of Bend Studio, Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog helps those affected by this abrupt closure find themselves a new job.

I am still in shock about Telltale Games closing down for good...

All classy. Very nice to see, and hopefully everyone can recover their careers from this. It's never a good thing to see a business go out in this industry.

I guess if there's one positive thing to come out of Telltale's closure, it's that some other developers are going to get a nice injection of talent.

Warms my heart to see so much outreach. I have nightmares about suddenly losing my job like that. Hopefully everyone is okay.

Don't kid yourself. These mass firings are a boon for many studios. They get to hire experienced/talented devs at a discount, just by sheer desperation, especially in such an abysmal bankruptcy as TTs.
Unionization can't come soon enough.

Getting a job is all that matters for these developers, they have families, being unemployed and having a family you need to provide to and not being able to do it is the most gut wrenching feeling ever, i hope all those affected land on their feet ASAP.

Never let a PR opportunity pass you by.
banned... people are naive. ERA is a Gaming Industry website, you can't say too much sh*t about Gaming Industry or its actors.

But I agree with this post.

This. Good news of course but Companies are Companies and they really don't care about your life and any other people.
