This Wednesday, a team of veteran game developers who had previously been working for several of the big names in the gaming industry, announced the creation of a new gaming studio, That’s No Moon Entertainment. The veterans all have stellar profiles, having worked on The Last of Us, Bungie, Call of Duty and PlayStation amongst others.
“The studio aims for creating more responsible and healthier developmental practices. The studio is not only looking for known faces and talents but is also on the lookout for fresh developers to increase diversity. “The ultimate goal”, says Taylor Kurosaki, the chief creative officer at That’s No Moon Entertainment, “is to leave the industry better than we found it”. In this direction, they are looking for talent to fill up their ranks, already.
That’s No Moon Entertainment: The New Independent
AAA Studio in Town
Proclaiming themselves as “independent AAA game development studio”, That’s No Moon Entertainment plans on developing single player games that are narrative/story driven. With veterans such as Michael Mumbauer, Tina Kowalewski, Taylor Kurosaki and Nick Kononelos, at the helm, and a host of others with several years of experience working in the industry, excellence can very well be expected from the upcoming projects.
The company has recently announced that they have received an investment of $ 100 million from Smilegate towards its debut game. The creators have promised that the debut project will be a “new and ambitious action-adventure game”. That’s No Moon promises that their games will push “the limits of stories and gameplay”. However, no information was imparted on when this new game can be expected.
We wish That’s No Moon Entertainment good luck on their new endeavour and hope that we get to talk about their debut game real soon. In a world where the craze for multiplayer gaming is on the rise, we can only guess that story driven, single player games, with strong gameplays, will bring about a new trend in the world of games.
