Independent developer Ready at Dawn has made 13 staff redundant.

The official announcement on its website reads:

We’ve spent the majority of our time at RAD hiring the best and most talented people to join our team. Today, we had to let go of 13 of these people because we simply couldn’t keep them on board while one project finishes and another ramps up. Unfortunately, these are the woes of being independent…

It sucks. There are no other words for it.
