Double Fine Productions, the team behind Kickstarter sensation Broken Age and upcoming PlayStation 4 re-release Grim Fandango, has been hit with layoffs. The already small development team (originally employing around 65 individuals) had to let go of twelve staff members after a publishing agreement fell through for an unannounced project.

“One of our unannounced projects was unexpectedly cancelled by its publisher,” said studio head Tim Schafer in a statement, “forcing us to reduce our staff by 12 people. Our remaining projects–Broken Age, Massive Chalice, and Grim Fandango Remastered, were unaffected.”
