Let's make Sony take half their Lemons back! The other half... make lemonade.

1 comment by AmaroqDricaldari on Aug 24th, 2012

Studio Liverpool (along with a few other European studios controlled by Sony) have been closed down. I don't have links to the various articles, but I will have some in this post soon.

To some it up, Studio Liverpool was once an independent company known as Psygnosis. In 1995, they made a game for the PS1 known as WipEout, which defined an entire generation of both games and gamers. The franchise sold hundreds if not thousands of copies, and then in 1996 they made a sequel, known as WipEout 2097, and in 1999 Wip3out.

Psygnosis was then acquired by Sony, and were renamed to Studio Liverpool.

On August 21, a well known member of Studio Liverpool had passed away. The very next day, Sony had begun closing down its various studios in Europe.

For at least a year, I have been assisting some friends in the development of a WipEout-inspired Fan-Game named Slipstream GX. With Studio Liverpool gone, the WipEout Zone community is all that's holding it all together. However, this means that Slipstream GX has become the spiritual successor to WipEout, and we want to make it as good as possible to show people that AG racing will never die. Today, as my gift to both the ModDB community and the WipEout Zone community, I am bringing Slipstream GX to ModDB, one step at a time.

As a side note, my other project isn't dead. However, I will have a helping hand this time around.
