Ntreev Soft going out of business

The Yonhap News Agency portal has today reported that Ntreev Soft is going out of business on 15th February 2024:

“NCSoft’s subsidiary Ntreev Soft, which developed the mobile game ‘Trickster M’, is taking steps to close its business. According to the gaming industry on 4th January, NCSoft has decided the day before to liquidate Ntreev Corporation as of February 15th and has notified its 70 employees about their resignations.
The mobile multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) ‘Trickster M’ and the baseball game ‘Professional Baseball H2’ and ‘H3’, developed and operated by Ntreev, will also be terminated.”

Same news on the japanese 4Gamer.net and Gamespark portals, where they mention Ntreev as developers of Pangya:
『スカッとゴルフ パンヤ』開発で知られるNtreev Softが廃業に―10年以上も赤字が続く経営状況から脱却できず | Game*Spark - 国内・海外ゲーム情報サイト

Gamespark’s article ends with a claim that, due to Ntreev’s demise, PangyaM won’t be developed anymore. It turns out that PangyaM is actually developed by NCSoft JP and not Ntreev, so its development should remain unaffected by Ntreev’s closure.

Jun Fujishima, author of the 4-koma Pangya comics, has posted a “thank you” message on X, formerly known as Twitter, as a reply to this news:

“Thank you for letting me draw “Panya 4koma” and other various things!”



It is very sad to see this company close. I was sure that the company could live but here we are. I hope the future of the franchises and employees are ok.
