So I've been watching Wakfu on Netflix in french (with subs) and you can guess who comes to mind while doing so.

xD the irony being that despite the fact I admit the high graphic quality of Dofus/Wakfu I just can't stand Ankama anymore since long....

Guess I'm late then xD

I have never tried the games, just admire the quality of the designs and the animation (or the practical workarounds they deploy when saving some of that work)

I've gotten away from Ankama products since 2009, you're a decade late =p but IT IS high quality graphic wise. A shame they tend to treat their employees like disposable slaves (big hours and low wages included, with bad ambiance and pressure).

As of late I always believe that every studio like Ankama (that is to say... most studios) will treat everyone like garbage unless you are a long-running senior; not even being extremely talented saves you anymore, for I know a few in my circle who do amazing things and yet they suck up to this thing a hundred times over.

I have colleagues and friends who need to work entire weekends over months nor can't even go back home during christmas because of crazy crunch times. I've reached the point where I flat out reject direct work offers from studios I used to admire ten years ago, knowing all this.

It's sad, and given the situation it's better to just do solo(..ish) work before letting someone else ruin the joy of executing your beloved career.

Considering how studio-torture has become an industry standard, we can just ignore it and enjoy what they do, at the very least *shrugs*
