Turmoil at Lace Mamba Global as indies allegedly go unpaid

Lace Mamba Global is under the blowtorch in the wake of alleged missed payments to indie creators. Amanita Design (Machinarium), Colibri Games (The Tiny Bang Story) and Daedalic Entertainment (The Whispered World) have issued an open letter lambasting the publisher for late payment of royalties and distribution of their games in certain territories without permission.

In a statement to RPS, Lace Mamba Global pinned the blame on one of its constituent companies. “Lace Mamba Global recognise that Mamba Games (Jason Codd) pre-existing contractual obligations are not being met and we will do all we can to help developers to ensure Mamba Games are held to account.” Jason Codd, who no longer holds a senior position with Lace Mamba Global, is yet to comment on the situation.
