Aeon Must Die!

Update: Limestone Games, the developer behind Aeon Must Die!, retweeted the message below:

All Aeon Must Die! devs quit the studio this week due to crunch and lack of payments, and the trailer was outsourced to artists without contracts.

This trailer was created with abuse, manipulation, theft.

Find out the truth about the development of this game here.

People who have worked on every shot of this are no longer with the company holding IP rights.

Some were not even paid for their work.

This trailer has a pending conflict of IP.

The real IP for the game was stolen from the creators via foul play.

Final reaction of the publisher to this information remains to be seen.
