The three founders of Honeyslug, a 7-year old indie studio behind Hohokum and Super Exploding Zoo, have announced that they’re going their separate ways. However, the studio is set to remain open. In a post on the company’s website, co-founders Ricky Haggett, Mark Inman and Nat Marco said that they have decided to pursue solo careers but that they’ll continue to make games.
We started Honeyslug seven years ago?! Wow! Seems a long time ago now, although some of the memories of starting out with just the 3 of us in a small room are still fresh in our minds. It’s been a winding road, and along the way we released around a dozen games on almost as many different platforms, in collaboration with a load of super talented and lovely people – we’re really happy with how we spent our time!
But over time things change, and people start to move in slightly different directions: This summer, the three founders of Honeyslug decided that the time had come to go our separate ways – split up the band and pursue solo careers (until we reunite for the lucrative sell-out 25th Anniversary Tour of course!). Don’t worry! We’re all going to keep making games and you’ll be hearing much more about that in due course.
We have no plans to close Honeyslug: lots of people love the games we’ve made and Honeyslug will stay in business to make sure that they can keep doing so – it’s likely you’ll be seeing some of them reach new audiences on new platforms in the future.
We’re not told who will be taking over Honeyslug’s management, but we’ll update our readers when we have more information.
