That is such sad news frown

The good news is they have filed under the euro equivalent of chapter 11 (re-organization) vs 7 (liquidation)

So definitely wishing them all the best in restructuring and hanging in there.

I am not sure if this is encouraging news. The so-called re-organization is likely just a step toward to asset management in preparation for dissolve the company.

Terrible news for the genre to start off the new year.

I had thought that both Grey Matter and So Blonde did reasonably well in Europe.

Yes, they have might done so - but it all depends on whether or not the publisher paid them. Many publishers have a habit, I think?, of paying the royalties for games developed by developers such as Wizarbox.

Also, it could be that Wizarbox couldn't get funding for its new game projects....
