It's possible that's what's meant by "acquired the operating assets of Portalarium".
The announcement indicates that the dev team will remain with the project.
LoL. Same. But I will go with Gratz @Chris
Will be interesting to see where we will go from here. My interest is peaked at least.
I looked them up. They have their own artists, programmers etc. Sorry I can't link it since I'm still away from home. But look them up. They are called catnip studios and also Catnip Games.
From the way it is phrased operating assets would be the servers, code, art, databases, and staff to functionally operate the game. Portalarium would still exist as a separate entity.
No those are others studio with similar name. Catnip games is just the name of the company chris made to get the rights on the game. Same team is around
And if they get a free spot im HERE! :]
Chris stated if catnip games does well so will seed investors. Episodes 2,3,4, and 5 still are coming as well as releases.
That isn't the same company. Catnip Games is only Chris, and now the rest of Portalarium.
Note, there is another game company called Catnip Games that made Bomberman for Xbox or something in Europe. They are completely unrelated. Catnip Games is a company started by me. The team is just the same old Shroud team.
I answered a lot of these questions during my stream today: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/492369699
Short and not super specific answers due to various legal reasons:
Seed invest and other investors need to talk to the vlpc company listed for specifics. I suspect Seed Invest will send something out but the short version is, if CG does well, investors do too
Box shipping will resume as Richard just finished signing another 500 pieces which is the thing that was blocking the last few dozen
As others have said, Richard and Starr are still involved and team not really changing. Starr will still drive schedules and store stuff and yell at Chris on streams for showing off ugly stuff and such.
The team is not changing as a result of this change
Why? This dramatically reduces our costs and risks as a company and makes it much more flexible to work some deals to help us get help, especially in QA and CS areas but also in promotion of the game
While I sure some people are concerned, this is actually a huge win for everyone involved including the investors. Those that know me know there is no one more passionate about the game than me. I'm far from perfect (sorry archers) but I try my hardest and want the very best for the game and the community.
Well that was my searching out the company information. So we just delve further and keep questioning.
Which Catnip Games did you lookup? The one in Germany, the one in Netherlands or the one in Austin?
One thing Chris said in his stream I just want to point out after seeing some comments earlier in the thread and debunks all the nonsense on the troll forums.
LB has not been taking a salary from this game nor will be, but will still be involved as he has been .. See stream for specific words from Chris.
How about in acquiring more programmers, artists, animators, etc. I was looking forward to help in that capacity
Sounds good to me.
OK my bad then who knows but I wish we had their team too.
Please keep this kind of "written" information coming. Please "do not" think that what you say in a stream is sufficient because it isn't. I don't have time to watch all your streams or pick through hundreds of hours of those streams to find information.
Your taking the time to post on the forums with useful, succinct information about WTH is going on here is what will give me and many others I know hope.
I forgive you Chris.
Looking forward to see how Chris will steer the Ship into the Future. I've been happy with what he's been doing since he took over the Lead earlier this year. And how could you not like a Company called Catnip Games !
