by Rainier on Oct. 18, 2010 @ 5:01 a.m. PDT

Krome Studios, known for Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, PS2/Wii versions of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and most recently Blade Kitten, had a good year in 2006. After first acquiring the remainders of Ratbag Games and setting up a new studio in Adelaide, it also took over Atari's Melbourne House that same year. Fast forward to Aug. 2010 and Krome Studios is in financial trouble and it is shutting down the Adelaide Office while handing out pink slips in the other. All in vain according to Aussie website Tsumea, which reveals Krome Studios is shutting down with only a a few contractors remaining to finish up some work.
