Many eyes widened and chins dropped as Microsoft announced earlier this week that Tango Gameworks, creators of the wildly acclaimed Hi-Fi Rush, is closing down. And the astonishment seems to include Tango employees.

Now the studio's game project manager Kazuaki Egashira wonders if last year's hit Hi-Fi Rush didn't get enough awards, posting pictures of all the statuettes, plaques and trophies it received (from BAFTA and The Game Awards, among others) with the comment: "Not enough?"

Incidentally, the day after Tango Gameworks was closed down, Xbox Game Studios boss Matt Booty said (thanks The Verge) during a meeting with his employees that they "need smaller games that give us prestige and awards". Games like Hi-Fi Rush, that is.
