"The company is saddened by the cuts and will provide the necessary support to those affected through the change," it continued.

Monumental saw difficulties earlier this year, too. The Football Superstars developer lost a promised grant when it failed to hire the 22 staffers it was required to add in order to obtain it.

In the last year, since the company made its development tool free for commercial Buy Runescape Gold game development, its audience has increased 20 times -- from 13,000 to 260,000 developers. And while there was some concern from both Unity's side and existing users that this huge influx might degrade the community, it hasn't been the case, said Helgason. "
