Google is struggling to fix one of its new Stadia games, after closing its own game studios earlier this month. Travel to Savage Planet debuted at Stadia on February 1, the same day Google closed its Stadia studios and fired a number of developers.
Travel to Savage Planet was developed by Typhoon Studios, a studio Google acquired to expand the first batch of Stadia titles. Players of the game have found that it is full of errors on Stadia, including gameplay issues that do not allow certain players to get past the main menu.
Eurogamer reports that Reddit users have been complaining about the issues for several weeks, and it is not clear who will actually fix it. As employees at Typhoon Studios have either left Google or moved on to new roles, Travel to Savage Planet players at Stadia have tried to reach out to Google, publishing 505 Games. While 505 Games published the game on other platforms, Google owns all the game code and data according to a support response that Reddit users claim to have received.
There are again players confused about who will fix the game, and Google has gone in to promise that it looks at the problems. “We are aware of this, and our team is working diligently with our partner publisher to find a solution,”
It is not clear when a solution will be available, and the game is still free as part of Google’s Stadia Pro subscription. Travel to Savage Planet was one of the first games launched by Google’s international development organization Stadia Games and Entertainment. It is now being shaped to be a memorable last one as well.
