I.C.E. rehires half of its game developers
I.C.E. Multimédia has reportedly rehired half of the 30 game developers it laid off last January (CNM, Jan. 23/02). Lesaffaires.com reports that the staff returned to work on Friday, July 12 and will begin working on a second edition of the company’s Land of the Magic Stones edu-tainment game. The title is expected to be released in November. There is no word on whether the game will be released in any format except CD-ROM, but I.C.E.’s stated intent in restructuring its development staff was to examine creating titles for platforms such as game consoles.
