Presto Studios Closing Down
8:51 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Jim Stephenson broke the news on his Riven Unofficial Home Page that, according to executive producer Greg Uhler, Presto Studios will be closing its doors soon. Presto is the company which was handed the monumental task of making Myst III: Exile by Cyan. Before that, the team at Presto created many hits, starting with The Journeyman Project adventure series.
Here is Uhler's statement from the article:
"Due to business, financial, and personal reasons, Presto Studios is discontinuing software development. Whacked! for the Xbox will be the last product that we ship. The company will remain as a corporate entity for many years, but will not be developing products. A minimal staff, including Michel and myself, will be here until the end of October."We wish all of the employees at Presto the best and hope they land safely in new opportunities soon. Stephenson has posted Presto's address and email for those wanting to contact the company in appreciation of their work.
