Maybe they should focus on making their games they already have run a bit better first. There are many complaints about the game play in World of Tanks. The platoon aspect needs fixing so it is more fairly ranked.

give me some names. Who's doing great environment work with Unity these days? I'd be happy to interview anyone who's showing some cool stuff!

Humble Bundle is cutting staff
14 October, 2015

Polygon reports, that game distribution platform Humble Bundle has fired 12 people. Creative, engineering, business development and communications departments were affected by the cuts. It’s not a very good sign for a young company, but according to the CEO’s comments there’s nothing to worry about.


Unfortunately, last week Humble Bundle was forced to let go of some of our employees. Despite strong revenue, and our community surpassing $65 million raised for charity to date, our past hiring was too ambitious and we had to make a hard call last week.

John Graham, Humble Bundle co-founder (via Polygon).

The biggest feature of Humble Bundle is the charity program. With every sale the company sends a proportion of its income to charity. Humble Bundle also sells a lot of indie games and gives an opportunity to pick up the right price for the package. It’s a very neat system, that already attracted millions of buyers. Recent Humble Bundle sales were registered at 150k copies each. A couple of years ago, the store enjoyed much bigger success. In 2013 Humble Indie Bundle 9 sold over 713,000 copies.

Humble Bundle is based in San Francisco, California. It’s one of the most expensive places in the world to run a gaming company.
