Gas Powered Games Bought by Wargaming

Well, we now know what Gas Powered Games alternative options were, as Rock, Paper, Shotgun is reporting that Chris Taylor's company has been bought by Wargaming, the publisher/developer behind the successful free-to-play title World of Tanks.

While this is certainly better than Gas Powered Games dying, it's clear that Taylor was proud of the company's independence, and whether this will have any influence on their development practice and schedules is up in the air. Of course, this might also mean that they now have the money to re-hire the staff they laid off during the Wildman Kickstarter, so I suppose presenting the situation gloomily isn't fair either.
