US developer Endless Entertainment has laid of a handful of staff from two studios.
GamaSutra reports that seven employees have been affected at the firm's New York and Oakland divisions. Some had only been at the studio for less than a year.
Endless Entertainment is best known for Series: Your Story Universe, an interactive fiction mobile game that features stories from several NBCUniversal properties, including Law & Order, Saved By The Bell and The Breakfast Club.
In a statement, the studio asserted that these layoffs are a reflection of changes to its processes, not the individuals involved.
"Today, Endless said a sad goodbye to seven talented team members and wonderful human beings," the company's CEO Michael Fox said. "The change had nothing to do with their work performance. It's simply an unfortunate reality of a slowdown in our current development cycle.
"We would love to work with all of them again in the future and are doing our best to help find new employment for them as soon as possible."
