French publisher Bulkypix goes into liquidation in a move that could leave devs out of pocket

French publisher Bulkypix goes into liquidation in a move that could leave devs out of pocket

French mobile publisher Bulkypix has entered liquidation proceedings.

The company entered receivership back in March 2016, but troubles at the publisher apparently started earlier than that. Developers have reportedly claimed to have not received any money from their games from back in October 2015, according to a Reddit post, as spotted by TouchArcade.

Bulkypix itself has remained quiet about its problems. Reports show though that the publisher had been operating at a loss in both 2013 and 2014, so it's perhaps not surprising that the studio is now liquidating its assets.

The silent treatment

It has remained silent during its liquidation too – TouchArcade reports that developers are finding their emails bouncing back, and have found out about the closure through second-hand sources.

Developers who have managed to get into contact with the developer have been told to get in touch with the liquidator in order to recover the rights to their games and any money owed to them, as the firm's banktruptcy is allegedly not a breach of contract.

If you are developer affected by this, you will have to fill in this form and send it to the liquidator. French developers have two months to file their claim as of 18 August, while international developers have four months.
