Mobile game developer TinyCo has laid off 27 employees. The layoffs occurred in its San Francisco and Argentina studios. The layoffs are part of a new strategy for the developer that will be outlined in the next few weeks.

"We’ve moved 10 steps forward on executing a specific strategy around how we build games and what games we build," said TinyCo CEO Suleman Ali in a statement to TechCrunch. "To execute against this strategy, we decided to consolidate game development out of our SF office and reduce our staff."

"Laying people off sucks, especially since TinyCo has always been a breeding ground for great friendships. We’ll provide more updates, including a game launch, in the near future," Ali concluded.

TinyCo has developed several casual games for mobile devices. They have developed a Tiny series of games, as well as gambling games like VIP Poker.
