My announcement is that I officially gave them my 2 week notice that I am leaving the company and gave them my official letter of resignation.  My last day in the office will be February 5th.

 

I'll probably make a video and go over some minor details on youtube once all is said and done.  

 

My goal is to get the game patched for you guys, but at this point I cannot find the strength to continue working at Arktos, and I'm sure many of you completely understand.

 

I'll do my best to help get the patch deployed, but once I've left in 2 weeks, I have no idea what they plan to do with the game and it will be beyond my control.

 

As Duke said previously, we have a good idea how this could go.

 

It's time for a new chapter in my life and it's something I've thought about for quite a long time now since I turned 30 this year.  I'm not getting any younger :)

 

I'm ultra thankful for all the opportunities and amazing times I've had working with Sergey and co and working on tons of games.

 

Once all is said and done, you're welcome to chat with me in my Stream!

 

I love all of you and it's been an amazing journey but I must close this chapter of my life for my own sanity. :)

 

PS, why is the aftermath facebook page named 'Shattered Skies Aftermath'???   :rolleyes:

 

PPS, Aftermath is not 'my' game.  I never owned it.  I simply had creative control.

Would they delete the game or what will happen?

So, this is to assume, control will be handed back over to Sergey and Co once you're good and gone? 

Hm. That's a toughy. I can see it going downhill quite drastically. 

 

Edit: It's a shame you can't continue working on it after leaving. I always thought that was this was about. Making the game something else and keeping it completely autonomous from Arktos.

Now is the time to say 'April fools'.  :(

I hoped that the game will rise again by you. Anyway I'm thankful that I could have some nice time playing with Aftermath thanks to you and your friends. I wish you the best!  :)

Sergey is gonna have to make a decision here. You would be naive to think were still looking at some form of 'progress' after the patch.

I understand Artemis.  I'm sure there is a lot of stuff behind the scenes that you are not telling us or you would never have to make a decision like this.  :)
