The problems continue for Mad Box, the Slightly Mad Studios console that will necessarily have to change its name because the latter is already used by a French company specialized in mobile games.
Nathan Bell, marketing director of Slightly Mad, said that the future of the project is currently under discussion after ” two big investors left the project following the announcement of Google Stadia. “
We do not know therefore if Slightly Mad has the economic resources to finish the Mad Box project (temporary name) or if the company is already looking for new funds and investors i. Bell simply stated that the future of the console is ” under discussion “, without going into details. It is not excluded that the studio can review its plans and present a less powerful platform that necessarily requires fewer investments than announced in January.
We look forward to finding out more, in recent months Slightly Mad has also published some concept renderings of Mad Box and the controller, proving to seriously believe in the future of this platform.
