If you've played BIT.TRIP FATE, you've seen Gaijin and Robotube's friendship in action with the inclusion of Mr. Robotube as one of the games' powerups. Robotube Games has developed both Zyrx and BloktonikAND created the Bit Museum retro-gaming series on Youtube. So, naturally, Alex Neuse bought them with his bags of money.
Gaijin Blog said:
In what can only be called an “extremely hostile takeover”, Gaijin has followed in the footsteps of other legendary game studios like Activision and EA and has gone on a company acquisition rampage this year.
Our first victim:
In the past two years, Gaijin Games has gone from three guys making WiiWare games to four guys + another company making WiiWare games, porting games to other consoles, publishing other developers' games and conceptualizing sick ideaz.
AND FLUX COMES OUT NEXT MONDAY, OR IN TWO DAYS IF YOU LIVE IN EUROPE!
I laughed at the official statement. Good for Gaijin, I'd love to see them grown further. I've only played Bit Trip Runner, and got frustrated as hell and quit on level 3-11, (I know, I need to go back and finish it,) but they seem to have done some great things since their inception, and can only hope they offer great things for the future.
