Game Republic, developer of meme-generating Genji: Days of the Blade, has quietly shut its doors.

That's according to a report by G-Dash (translated by Kotaku) containing photos of the developers' empty offices, complete with "For Rent" signs.

Genji was granted an infamous showing during Sony's E3 2006 press conference. Footage of "famous battles which actually took place in ancient Japan" featuring "giant enemy crabs" quickly became immortalised in a series of internet memes.

More recently Game Republic was responsible for 2010's Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (recipient of a Eurogamer 7/10) and this year's fantasy adventure Knight's Contract. Neither managed to set shop tills ringing.
