Three former 2K Games employees have formed a new studio called The Fullbright Company. Steve Gaynor, Johnnemann Nordhagen and Karla Zimonja make up the trip, who have collectively worked on BioShock 2, Minerva's Den, BioShock Infinite and XCOM. That alone proves they have experience, but Steve Gaynor's amibitons for the new studio are rather high.
A memorable experience that you'll be drawn into, and keep thinking about after the game's turned off, and want to come back to again someday. An experience that gets away from the constraints of ossified game genres, while relying on what we're good at as a team: creating immersive places to inhabit, and a deep, personal story to explore at your own pace. A nonviolent game in an unfantastical locale; an experience that not many games provide, built out of techniques that only video games can employ."
We're excited to see where this new studio is heading. We'll keep you updated on their project as it develops.
