on the plus side, David Braben opened his arms to the unfortunate. not to mention a heap of other devs on twitter.

Really humbling that the old Amiga crews are still passionate in that way

A sad day, that was my first industry job, all those years ago
Hope everyone finds a new gig.

Back when I started, all their snes, genesis and PS1 artists had Amiga A1200/A4000 on their desks for sprite/texture work
