Art director of thatgamecompany’s beautiful, calming, aesthetically-pleasing games Flower and Journey, Matt Nava, has co-founded a new studio called ‘Giant Squid’ with film and TV production company ‘The Ink Factory‘.
Announced via Twitter by Nava, Journey’s Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory is also on board alongside Journey lead designer Nicholas Clark, now a company ‘advisor’.
The studio’s site states that the new company plan ‘to create innovative and deeply moving games that will inspire players, challenge convention, and push the boundaries of experiential and narrative interactive entertainment into new and unexpected areas’. Apparently working on their first project already, hopefully we’ll get to see what’s in store some time soon. If thatgamecompany’s games have been anything to go by, it’ll be nothing short of amazing.
