I could have sworn we posted a number of new and interesting Ex Illis items from Studio Figurines Bastion in the last few months. Yet, here we are.
Bastion has let go its entire staff and shut down, at least temporarily. “While sales are on the rise, communities are growing and our distribution network is improving everyday, it became apparent that we couldn’t continue with our current financial structure.”
I think that’s code for “We lost more money than we made; who wrote this business plan, anyway?”
This is inaccurate. The statement you’re quoting was posted in January of 2011, the shutdown was temporary, and the project continues (nominally at least) as a hobby for two of the original staff.
Disregard that. Google is saying that this was published in January 2012, but the url is clearly labeled as 2011. My bad.
Anyway, Bastion is still around, kind of. I wish they’d give the IP to someone who could handle it, and maybe get some new units out.
