Boston Studio Offers Free Office Space To Developers Laid-Off

Boston developer Fire Hose Games, known for its work on Dance Central, Rock Band Blitz, and Ms. Splosion Man, has offered free office space for those recently laid-off and looking to pursue indie development in the area. Fire Hose Games admitted to a “lot” of lay offs happening in Boston, including Bioshock developer Irrational Games. 

The developer wrote the following on its site: 

“Most of the developers laid off are probably wondering ‘What am I going to do next?’, and some are considering going indie and releasing their own games. Meanwhile we’re in the process of setting up an indie game seed fund designed to support Boston area indie teams, though we’re not quite ready to start taking on applications for that yet as we’re still getting our ducks in a row.”

“We can’t sit by and watch all this potential development talent evaporate, especially considering our mission to help other indie devs. So we’re going to do what we can to help!”

“I hope the silver lining of these layoffs are that we get more great indie games out of Boston!”

For those interested you can apply by emailing the developer through the following email address, [email protected]
