Nat Marco, Mark Inman and Ricky Haggett to work on solo projects

Hohokum developer Honeyslug disbands

The founders of UK indie studio Honeyslug have parted ways ways after seven years working together.

The developer had worked on numerous games including Hohokum, Super Exploding Zoo and The Wild Rumpus since it was founded in 2008.

Founders Nat Marco, Mark Inman and Ricky Haggett have now decided to move on however and pursue their own individual projects.

In a statement announcing the decision, the team said there were no plans to officially close Honeyslug, and it will continue to support its games and even release them on new platforms.

“We started Honeyslug seven years ago?! Wow!” read a statement.

“Seems a long time ago now, although some of the memories of starting out with just the 3 of us in a small room are still fresh in our minds. It’s been a winding road, and along the way we released around a dozen games on almost as many different platforms, in collaboration with a load of super talented and lovely people – we’re really happy with how we spent our time!

“But over time things change, and people start to move in slightly different directions: This summer, the three founders of Honeyslug decided that the time had come to go our separate ways – split up the band and pursue solo careers (until we reunite for the lucrative sell-out 25th Anniversary Tour of course!). Don’t worry! We’re all going to keep making games and you’ll be hearing much more about that in due course.”
