Joe Madureira, famed comic book artist and creative director for the Darksiders series, announced that he’s leaving Vigil Games. After seven years at the studio he co-founded, Madureira made his announcement on Twitter.
In a longer post on his Facebook page, he elaborated, “After 7 long years and 2 hit games ( Darksiders BABY! ) I’m afraid the time has come for me to move on to new adventures. I could not be more proud of what we achieved, or the awesome people who helped build up this studio.” I really liked the weight and heft to Joe’s designs in Darksiders and Darksiders II. I wish both him and Vigil Games success in the future. So long and thanks for all the skulls.
