The main members of Disco Elysium Developer ZA/UM have left the company in an ‘involuntary’ manner.
According to Martin Luiga, an editor on ZA/UM’s Disco ElysiumKey members of the company, including writer and lead designer Robert Kurvitz, writer Helen Hindpere, and art and design team leader Aleksander Rostov, left the company “involuntarily”.
Luiga shared an update on medium.com, said that he, a “founding member and Secretary of the cultural association ZA/UM, and the one who assembled most of the core groups, is hereby dissolved the ZA/UM cultural association. ” Luiga also noted that these three core members had not worked at ZA/UM “since late last year and their departure from the company was involuntary.” Furthermore, he said that this “seems like bad news to beloved fans who have been waiting for a Disco sequel.”
The ZA/UM cultural association is different from the ZA/UM studio that developed the Disco Elysium, and Luiga says he chose to dissolve the cultural organization because it “no longer represents the ethos on which it was founded.”
“People and ideas are eternal; organizations can be temporary,” continued Luiga. “I’ve found that the organization has been successful overall and that most of the mistakes we make are dependent on the socio-cultural conditions we face. I still encourage everyone to organize and I would say that one of the qualities that ZA/UM’s Cultural Organization lacks a lot of formal structure.
In the post’s comments, Luiga appeared to blame ZA/UM’s investors while acknowledging Disco Elysium could not have happened without them in the first place.
“Imagine a kleptomaniac, if you will,” says Luiga. “Only instead of stealing, let’s say, ‘A Lolly pop,’ they take the trouble to manipulate dozens of people to steal, ultimately, from themselves, just because they’re so adept at that kind of manipulation. what they always do, really one of them is the first one to be convicted for investment fraud in Estonia All the same, if we manage to get the initial investment without none of these people.”
