This entry is obviously a reaction to the recent news that developer of Another Code/Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk and Little King’s Story, Cing, Inc. has filed for bankruptcy… It’s sad when good developers go through tough times.
Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is one of my favourite games on the Nintendo DS, it’s up there with the entire Ace Attorney series by Capcom which I also hold in extremely high respect. However, unlike Capcom, Cing is a developer with very few games under its belt. A PS2 game, a few Japan-only mobile phone games, a few DS games and a couple of Wii games. Quality over quantity is the way Cing operates, and their recent games on the DS and Wii were all very well made, quality games.
