A strong presence in Nintendo shooters has gone out of business.

n-Space, the development studio who worked with Nintendo on Geist and would later bring multiple Call of Duty games, has officially closed its doors.

Former n-Space artist Ben leary made the announcement on Twitter earlier today, confirming that the studio had suffered multiple rounds of layoffs in the runup to the final closure.

Formed in the mid 1990s, the Orlando-based studio originally focused on PlayStation and PC titles before shifting to Nintendo development with the GameCube. The company's most well known title was 2005 sci-fi shooter Geist, and the company followed up by adapting several shooters for the DS, most notably Star Wars Battlefront and several Call of Duty games. n-Space also provided development assistance on Skylanders Giants and Swap Force's 3DS versions. Their final title was Sword Coast Legends, a Dungeons and Dragons RPG published last year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Bless their hearts, it looks like for a while the developers were doing a Heroes Of Ruin podcast, now that's dedication.

These guys poured a lot of love in Heroes of Ruin. The game never quite lived up to the hype, never reached the potential that they were striving for, but it was enjoyable enough and the online with voice chat was something that Nintendo sure could have used more of.


Best wishes to all who are now looking for work.

Sorry to see the studio close. Good luck to the staff's future endeavors!

They never did anything too great, but it's still a bummer and hopefully the people can find work elsewhere.
