Brighton-based developer Relentless Software, the team behind Buzz! on PlayStation, is closing its doors today after being in business for 13 years.
BAFTA award winning Buzz! originally released back in 2010 for PlayStation 2. The release was followed by a number of updated variants adding new topics and difficulty levels. Buzz! took the form of a TV quiz show, players used the custom peripherals to buzz in and then select the correct answer using the coloured buttons. The game came with four controllers but could be played without the full four people.
Relentless had opened a new studio in Wales with the assistance of the Government and a commitment from Hasbro to invest in the studio for three years. The goal of the Welsh studio was to develop projects based on Hasbro’s toy line.
We wish everyone affected by the closure all the best in their future endeavours.
