Atari Closes Down and Liquidates Eden Games

Eden Games, the Lyon-based developers of Alone in the Dark and Test Drive, has been formally shuttered by Atari and has reportedly been in the process of liquidation since January 2013. We can't honestly say that we were at all surprised to hear this considering the events of the past year that involved lacklustre sales, the firing of the majority of Eden Game's staff during the summer and the subsequent strike by the company's remaining employees.

It's always sad to see developers shut down and we hope that Eden Games' former staffers have better luck in the future, whether at Blossom Minds or elsewhere in the industry.

    Let's be honest, they didn't really make quality games to begin with. Some of their games were okay at best. Atari seemed to have made the mistake of putting way too much confidence in them. With the Test Drive series and the god awful 2008 version Alone in the Dark. I'll always remember them for making that awful game, not because of it's poor quality but because it caused Atari to throw a fit that you would expect from a small child. Threatening lawsuits against those who reviewed it poorly. It's honestly amazing that Atari kept them around after that flop to begin with as it was clearly a heavy investment by Atari.
