MCV reports that Oxygen Games is to cease internal development. The publisher of titles such as Cheggers’ Party Quiz and My Dress-Up is seeking a buyer for its London studio.

The studio was formed in 2007 to work on DS and Wii titles. According to MCV, Oxygen called its decision ‘a move back to a more traditional publisher model using external development teams only.’

In this environment, finding a buyer for a 14 person Nintendo developer seems unlikely. Oxygen Studios is moving to the GameOverZone.
