R.I.P. AlphaDream – Press F for Respects

by Abdul Hussain

A lot of companies come and go, in all walks of life, and in every single industry imaginable, but unfortunately, a gaming company founded by a former SquareSoft staffer that is well-known for developing Mario & Luigi games for Nintendo had to be one of them. I just hope that the staff affected by all of this find jobs as soon as possible, and not be impacted by this sad event in such a way that it’ll severely handicap their livelihoods and their mental and physical wellbeing
