Justin Roiland decided to leave the Squanch Games teamauthor of the recent triumph High on Life.
With a brief message entrusted to Twitter, the team itself made the announcement, which appears to have already been made a few days ago: "On January 16, 2023, Squanch Games received the resignation of Justin Roiland," reads the message. "The passionate Squanch team will continue to develop games that we know our fans will enjoy while continuing to improve High On Life."
This is a fairly predictable consequence from the investigation into Justin Roiland in Orange County, California.
Following an incident that dates back to January 2020, a former partner of the author accused him of domestic violence, bodily harm, and kidnapping. Roiland has pleaded innocent, but in the meantime the investigations continue, and there is still a legal proceeding.
Roiland is the author of the video games High On Life, Trover Saves the Universe, and Accounting, which all come from a team effort by Squanch Games; his leaving might have significant consequences for the team's work, as the circumstances develop.
