So Telltale just got hit with a class action lawsuit.

At first I thought ‘aww they can’t get a break’, but then I read it’s because they abruptly fired everyone without notice or severence which is against California law.  Even though I really like Telltale, you have to respect workers rights. That’s a lot of families that are suddenly without any sort of income.

Yeah, I ADORE Telltale, but I'm pretty sure they laid off everything I adore about it.

Why would they even do that? Did they just all of a sudden forget there's a such thing as laws?

Apparently they couldn’t afford a decent lawyer. They couldn’t even afford decency.

The amount of bullshit it heaped on it's dev teams has made me lose all the respect I ever had for Telltale. Overworking, underpaying, and now just laying everyone off without anything? Yeah, fuck them.

In happier news, Cyan finally has a prototype of the Myst box set/book from their latest kickstarter, and I'm sooooooo happy that I ordered one.  This isn't the final version, but it looks even better than I thought it would.  Going to immediately take the games out and use it to store precious items, or maybe other worlds.
