Gas Powered Games’ Chris Taylor says that the struggling company has been able to re-hire some of the previously laid off employees.
It’s a see-saw down at Gas Powered Games. First, we hear that things are going well when he spoke to us a few days ago. Shortly after, we hear that the Wildman developer is having to layoff several people, potentially close the Kickstarter, and the future is uncertain. Today, however, during an IAMA on Reddit, Chris Taylor commented that employees who had been laid off have been able to re-hired, but the future is still uncertain.
When asked if GPG has had the chance to re-hire anyone, Chris Taylor responded: “Yes, today we brought back a number of key people. They have a very clear picture of the risks, and had the weekend to think clearly about what they wanted. Some people have chosen to move on, and those who stay know that the future is uncertain.”
