Shiny switches parents

The makers of Earthworm Jim, Sacrifice, and Path of Neo have been bought out from Atari. Shiny's new parent company is "the largest independent game developer in North America," Foundation 9 Entertainment. Foundation 9's portfolio includes studios such as Backbone (Death Jr.) and The Collective (Marc Ecko's Getting Up). Shiny will relocate with The Collective in 2007, surrendering its intellectual properties to Atari but keeping its staff intact. A new project is already confirmed under Foundation 9, though it's still too early to release details.
