Key Members of Disco Elysium Developer ZA/UM HAVE GONE the Company Within an ‘Involuntary’ Manner

In accordance with Martin Luiga, an editor on ZA/UM’s Disco Elysium, key members of the business, including lead writer and designer Robert Kurvitz, writer Helen Hindpere, and lead of art and design Aleksander Rostov, have gone the company within an “involuntary” manner.

Luiga shared the update on Medium.com, saying he, a “founding member and Secretary of the ZA/UM cultural association, along with the assembler of all of the core team, am hereby dissolving the ZA/UM cultural association.” Luiga also notes these three core members was not working at ZA/UM “because the end of this past year and their leaving the business was involuntary.” Furthermore, he says this might “look like bad news for the loving fans which are looking forward to the Disco sequel.”

The ZA/UM cultural association differs from the studio ZA/UM that developed Disco Elysium, and Luiga says he thought we would dissolve the cultural organization since it “no more represents the ethos it had been founded on.”

“People and ideas are designed to be eternal; organizations may be temporary,” Luiga continued. “I discover that the business was successful overall & most of the mistakes which were made were contingent, dependant on the sociocultural conditions we were thrown into. I still encourage visitors to organize, and I’d say that among the qualities that the ZA/UM cultural organization sorely lacked was virtually any formal structure. For some time, it had been beautiful. My sincerest because of all which have rooted for all of us.”

In the comments of the post, Luiga seems to place a few of the blame because of this situation on the investors of ZA/UM while also admitting Disco Elysium might not have happened without them to begin with.

“Imagine a kleptomaniac, in the event that you will,” Luiga said. “Only that rather than stealing, say, ‘A Lolly pop,’ they take time to manipulate a large number of visitors to steal, ultimately, from themselves, because they are actually very experienced in that sort of a surgical procedure. It’s what they always do, really. One of these was the initial guy to be convicted for investment fraud in Estonia. Yet, idk if we’d have got the original investment without these folks.”

While this might not be the very best news for all those waiting on the sequel to Disco Elysium, Luiga wrote on Twitter he believes “things with the sequel are in fact sweet enough, you may even obtain it the way it had been meant, it could take a shit ton of time but RPG fans are sorta familiar with waiting, ain’t they.”

In our rare 10/10 overview of Disco Elysium – THE ULTIMATE Cut, we said that this is a “unique mixture of noir-detective fiction, traditional pen-and-paper RPGs, and a big helping of existentialist theory,” and the ultimate Cut elevates the overall game from “an already phenomenal RPG to a genuine must-play masterpiece.”
