Oh yes, I felt the same. I was following that "Mingy Jongo" account on Twitter since 2013 I guess. (For anybody who doesn't know: http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/28/ex-r ... njo-tooie/
But they never posted anything in that time frame, while I had little conversations underneath their most recent tweet (sometimes in 2012). Last year somebody asked Grant Kirkhope & he admitted that it got canned, since everyone lived at different places.When they started a "reboot" right before christmas last year, I raised my hopes, but didn't expect that they actually form a whole company & go with it 100%!
Maybe some of you remember how they tweeted "CTRL", "ALT" & "DEL" followed by some binary codes and commands, right before "installing an update", "engaging reveal mode" & finally turning Mingy Jongo into Playtonic Games
With weekly gaps, they tweeted only one word or command for almost two months! Now THAT'S teasing, huh?
(By the way, I wonder how many of the "alleged failed" Mingy Jongo Project people went to Playtonic)
