    I’ve been hearing a few rumblings ( during the last 5 or 6 weeks ) that something is happening ( not so good unfortunately ), if there are any Kapooki guys on the boards, maybe you could give an update?

    Regards…

    Michael Griffin has left Kapooki to spend more time with his family in Kilkenny. He left shortly after E3 this year.Michael and his wife have a very young baby and are expecting another. The long commutes and extended stays were simply too much in the end. However, he’s still in close touch with his friends in the industry, and who knows? We may yet see him make a return ot the industry

    Dave Stafford, another of the Kapooki founders and their art director has taken over CEO duties. Kapooki are in the final stretch on their first PS2 title

    I know I’m not alone in wishing Mike, Dave and the other Kapooki-ites the very best for the future

    Hi folks. Dave here. Thanks for asking after us! We’re still kicking allright. I have indeed taken on CEO duties, and we are on the final leg of our project. It is, however, initially a PC title, but we are planning on bringing out a console version in the near future too.
