Another dark day for mature games

The studio behind Cursed Mountain has been shut down by parent company Koch Media.

The game was Deep Silver Vienna's first piece of Wii software and is one of the few third-party titles that was backed by a healthy television advertisement campaign but, although there are no hard sales figures to go on, it is generally regarded that the game sold poorly.

Koch Media have not cited poor sales of Cursed Mountain as a reason for the closure, simply stating that the “current overall economic situation” forced the decision. It is thought that the current employees of Deep Silver Vienna will be offered positions within Koch Media. Co-founder Hannes Seifert however, is rumoured to have now become production director at IO Interactive, according to his LinkedIn profile.

We quite liked the game here at Nintendo Life and would like to wish all its staff good luck with the future.
