Penny Arcade unsympathetic to Troika
Penny Arcade unsympathetic to Troika [ Company -> Update ]

More info on Company: Troika Games
In their most recent update, Penny Arcade! have written a short bit about Troika. There's no new information, but the opinion is an interesting one, which I'm drifting towards agreeing with.
It sounds as though Troika is no more, or at any rate they are liquidating everything in their offices, so if they are still coherent as a developer presumably their next game involves sitting in a bare room. Troika (for those of you with a concussion) is the little company that couldn't, producing games of marvelous, unprecedented promise coupled with epic lapses in technical execution. The company was a hole that great ideas crawled half-way out of, so I hope you'll pardon me if I don't dab the corner of my eye with a handkerchief and try to look strong. There were undeniably talented people there. Hopefully they'll end up someplace where that kind of thing matters.
I think that sums up a lot of my recent feelings toward the company. I can honestly say, I haven't played a single one of their games through to completion: the nearest I got was the end boss in Arcanum. I won't go as far as saying 'no more free rides', though.

Thanks MrSmileyFaceDude for the news tip.
