RUMOR – State of affairs at High Voltage

Thanks to RMC over at GoNintendo and his source we have some rumors concerning High Voltage Software.  RMC believes his source 100% and has stated the only reason he classifies it as a rumor is because he hasn’t confirmed with High Voltage yet, so we will classify it as a the same.

- The company has laid off many people in the past couple years.
– Many of the employees have been demoted to jobs well below their skill level.
– After employees were laid off, one of the studios producers purchased a new sports car.
– The company has some very good, talented people, but their work suffers under lackluster management.
-Animales de la Muerte is actually completed, but the studio has no interest in releasing it
– even the employees don’t know why this is happening
– HVS showed off footage of Animales de la Muerte that didn’t show any blood or gore, all in the hopes of getting cash for the project
– HVS is very upset that Sega shipped a very low amount of Conduit 2 copies to retailers.
– Conduit 2 features MotionPlus support, but there’s no actual programming in the game’s engine for it. In other words, it doesn’t actually support the device.
– The studio is likely going to focus purely on licensed kids games with short development cycles of 4-5 months.
– it’s also likely that the company is going to work on iOS games in the near future

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
