THe 30 minutes to leave the building is not so surprising. Generally, when letting someone go, they shutoff your computers while you called away from your desk and then you are allowed back in your space to get your belongings and leave. The very last thing a company wants is a disgruntled employee in the building or having any access to the data.
I've worked in plenty of offices and that was standard operating procedure.

Having never been "let go" that's an experience I'm glad not to have encountered whistle

Good! I wonder if the CEO's tweet is still around where he said he wasn't closing, and he plans to be back. I can't find where I saw it now.

This is such sad news. I admit I lost interest in their games once they went away from traditional AGs - not remotely interested in TWD - but they had a clear direction and stuck to it, so you have to respect that - and of course thousands of players loved that style of game.

The stuff going around on Twitter about this is mind-boggling... people see a tragedy and decide to vent their own petty or downright stupid bigotry about female devs or whatever their gripe is as if it's a personal victory of their own. frown

Isn't it just amazing how toxic the environment can be on social media, CaptainD? I recall a time the GameBoomers for mocked online for not allowing and banning posters that attempted the same things. I am glad we never tolerated it and still don't. I have no problem deleting anyone that trolls and posts inflammatory remarks.

Here comes more Layoffs for BigFish. sad
