Layoffs At Scribblenauts Devs 5th Cell

Scribblenauts developers 5th Cell have laid off 45 employees but, contrary to initial reports, the company say they're not closing down. 5th Cell had been working on a new mobile version of Scribblenauts, their series about solving free-form puzzles by drawing almost anything into existence, but its surprise cancellation left them overstaffed.
