He says that the last five years have brought him “incredible joy” from working with the amazing indie devs. This doesn’t mean that Kirk is turning his back on the indie scene. In fact, it is quite the opposite. He wants to make it a priority so we could be seeing much more of Kirk Scott the
Here is the full statement from Kirk:
I am no longer working at Nintendo. The past 5 years have brought incredible joy from working with all of the amazing indies, and that work will continue! Since Feb. of this year the events we have all experienced have crystalized my thinking. I’m tired. Opening doors for minorities, being inclusive, and enabling success for everyone in the indie space will be a priority for me. It brings me joy! I can’t wait to continue this work with all of you. We have an opportunity to make things better for others and educate while making great games. Stay tuned!
