Ron Gilbert reports at Grumpy Gamer on the fate of the children's game company he founded after leaving LucasArts, Humongous Entertainment;
In preparation for shutting down Humongous Entertainment, Atari laid off all but a handful of people wrapping up a project. I'm sure it is an event that will go largely unnoticed in the gaming press, after all, it's just kid's games.Goodbye Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam, Freddi Fish & friends...
In some ways I consider Humongous to be my greatest achievement, and also my greatest failure.
