Well, here's the thing: This is a hugely competitive industry. Your only hope is to put out top-quality products and even that is no guarantee of success.

And if you fall shy in terms of quality, then you're really in trouble. Just ask Spark Unlimited.

A NeoGAF member found out that the developer's office equipment was up for auction, and wanted to know what the deal was. Spark Unlimited CTO John Butrovich then confirmed to Polygon : "It's the end of Spark as a game developer," he said. All the employees have been laid off and all current projects are now canceled. And that's just too bad.

The team's titles included Lost Planet 3 and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z , along with a few other less-than-impressive games. It's unfortunate but again, this is an extremely competitive business.

Sucks because they were a pretty decent dev, like Rebellion. Nowhere near the level of a Double Helix in terms of putting out bad games.. I enjoyed Legendary, Yaiba, and especially, Lost Planet 3. LP3 had alot of pretty good ideas (most nicked from other games, admittedly) and battling in the mech was damn sweet.

Too bad for the employees. Admittedly, I don't think I've played a single game of theirs.
