Blue Tongue closed its doors on Friday, putting a great number of game developers out of work. Now Firemint has reached out, via Tsumea, to all Blue Tongue and THQ Australia employees let go by THQ.
The message on Tsumea reads as follows:
We were very sad to hear the news of the closure of the two local THQ studios. We have a great deal of respect for the talent that worked at these studios and we think they created some great games.
Firemint would like to reach out to those that have recently lost their jobs, we need great developers to join our teams. We’re specifically after programmers and quality assurance testers. If you’re passionate and talented, we want to hear from you.
It’s a great gesture by Firemint, but also a smart one for an expanding company on the lookout for the best development talent in Australia.
