Jon Verrall and Jonathan Silver in LARPs

Jon Verrall - writer and cinematic designer at Retro Studios - has revealed on Twitter that he's leaving the company after almost two years.

Verrall - who refers to himself as an "award-winning writer, cinematics director, voice director, choreographer, and performer for video games and Internet television" on this LinkedIn profile - previously wrote, produced and appeared in the web series LARPs.

He joined Retro in 2016. We assume he has been working on the company's as-yet-unannounced new project; the studio's last title was Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, released way back in 2014. An enhanced version of the game is about to launch on the Switch.

We wish Jon all the best in the future.
