Squanch CEO Roiland steps down amid domestic violence charges

The CEO and co-founder of Squanch Games, Justin Roiland, has resigned from his position at the studio.

That's according to a tweet from the developer, which says that he stepped down on January 16th. Squanch says that it will continue to work on the recently-released High On Life, as well as making other titles.

This news comes following word that Roiland was being charged with domestic battery as well as, er, false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit.

He has also been dropped from the animated series Rick and Morty by network Adult Swim. He voiced both titular characters. The Hollywood Reporter claims that his roles are being recast.

Roiland co-founded Squanch Games back in 2016.
