Justice Sucks Developer Samurai Punk Is Closing Its Doors

This sucks

Melbourne-based indie studio Samurai Punk has announced that it will cease development and disband.

After ten years of creating games, the Australian development studio released a statement on its X account, revealing that its staff will go their separate ways. The statement looks back at the studio’s inception, saying that the landscape at the time made it necessary for the group of like-minded creatives to start their own venture. Ten years on, and the situation has changed. “Since then we’ve grown a lot as developers and learnt a lot about what we want as artists making video games,” the statement reads. “This introspection has led us to the conclusion that it’s the right time for us to part ways and embark on new adventures.”

The team leaves behind a rich catalogue of indie titles, from the unique competitive shooter Screencheat to first-person shooter Killbug, the studio’s final release. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention a game near and dear to me in Justice Sucks, an arcade action game that let me live out my dreams to play as a vacuum.

The statement makes this decision sound like a reasonably positive one, and we wish all the best for each and every member of Samurai Punk.
