New Loom Network CEO clarifies concerning information published by former employee

One of Loom Network’s former employees recently leaked information about the company’s Kickstarter-funded game, Relentless (also called Zombie Battleground). The leak alleged that the project, and potentially the entire Loom Network, were no longer actively being developed.

Loom’s Twitter account, however, uploaded a number of tweets since that time, including a roadmap for the year which…
