In January of 2018, the news broke that the creator of Downwell, Ojiro “Moppin” Fumoto, was hired by Nintendo. After working at the studio for almost a full year, however, he’s announced that he’ll be leaving Nintendo to pursue indie development again.
 


 
For anyone worried the split wasn’t amicable, Fumoto seems quite jovial about it in the tweet’s replies.

We wish him all the best with his next endeavors!
