Y-Project developer closes doors

Westka closes down for lack of funding, despite publisher interest in its upcoming action-adventure game, the Y-Project.

Today, October 1, is Westka Interactive's last day in business. The German developer was forced into closing when it couldn't find additional funding for its principal game project, the Y-Project, although according to a note on the official Y-Project Web site, Westka had found a publisher for the game and had signed a letter of intent, an early step to a publishing deal.

Yesterday, the studio laid off its 44 employees, and both the Y-Project and Race Tracks Unlimited , a new game announced at ECTS, are effectively canceled.

The Y-Project was scheduled for next year. For more details on the Y-Project, check out our Race Tracks Unlimited of the game.
