Being laid off is something someone is never really prepared for, even if your job’s financial crisis has been making national headlines these past two weeks. While many employees took to Twitter to publicly announce their departure from 38 Studios this afternoon, much of the gaming industry banded together to provide support to those affected. Many also offered job openings, but the important thing is everyone stayed together.
Amanda Cosmos (Irrational) – Irrational is still hiring for Bioshock Infinite. Even if you don’t see your job on the site still hit us up http://irrationalgames.com/
Tami Baribeau ( The Playforge) – We’re hiring senior artists with vector animation skills at the Playforge, where we make iOS games.

These are just some of the many supportive tweets that have started pouring this afternoon after reports came in that 38 Studios was no more. If you’re in the gaming industry and want to lend a hand, be sure to tweet your openings with the hashtag #38jobs or comment your support below. Our hearts go out to all those affected by today’s news.
