Sad news for anyone excited for Revenant Hill, which would have been the follow-up game to the exceptionally well reviewed indie game Night in the Woods as it has been cancelled.

The website for developers The Glory Society has been replaced with a statement on things ending:

​Making anything complex poses challenges along the way. Games take a while to make and usually require a good team working together. We've been lucky to have one such good team. Unfortunately, recent serious health issues have necessitated two key members stepping away from the project indefinitely. We are a small team and we each wear multiple hats. This is a loss of several hard to replace hats in an environment where all hats are needed. Given the realities of schedules, budgets, and the fraught task of reworking the whole project within those parameters, the team has amicably decided to suspend operations. For all intents and purposes, this is the end of the development of Revenant Hill.

We are a cooperative, and we make decisions as a group. For us, this was the clear path to take for the well-being of the team, which is frankly more important than games. In the future, after the dust has settled, perhaps we'll talk about what we've made and learned together. In the meantime, we want to thank everyone who worked with us, supported us, and believed in us
Sometimes things happen beyond your control that change the available options and you just have to roll with it together. Glory was a project in and of itself, and it’s one we’re proud to have been part of. Thank you for caring about what we did. Take care of each other, and support the workers doing the labor of making the games you love. We'll see you around.

<3 The Glory Society

Shame, I know a few people who said Night in the Woods was one of their absolute favourite games, so I was quite keen to see Revenant Hill too. All the best to the developers.

Whilst it's a shame for a game that people were anticipating to have been cancelled, it's very refreshing to see this sort of attitude in an industry where a number of the big players are better-known for squeezing their employees for all they're worth, health and work/life balance be damned.

I'm glad that they made the right decision for everyone involved - major props for that.

Night in the woods was certainly one of my most memorable gaming experiences ever. Wish everyone involved only the best.

I did not expect to enjoy Night in the Woods as much as I did. It's a genuinely memorable game, I really enjoyed the characters and their dialogues and interactions, dialogue felt real the way that Stardew Valley, or Life Is Strange, or Oxenfree does, written in a down to earth fashion. The game also does an effective job of making you feel for the setting and the plight of the people living in it's dinky little town. Also great soundtrack.
I would put it up there with the most memorable games I've played in the last five years, alongside Outer Wilds, Elden Ring, Eastward, and Far: Lone Sails. Definitely recommend.
