According to Japanese news site Data-Max, Japanese video game developer Cing has filed for bankruptcy, suffering liabilities (debts and obligations of the business) to the tune of 256 million yen (£1.87 million).

While the name Cing might not immediately ring any bells, it's the studio behind the likes of Hotel Dusk, Another Code and Little King's Story.

A sequel to graphic adventure Hotel Dusk was released in Japan earlier this year, but no UK release date has been announced.
