Giant Squid is a new studio to keep an eye on. It popped up over the weekend, and already has some big names attached. Matt Nava (Art Director on Flower and Journey for thatgamecompany) has teamed up with film and TV production company The Ink Factory to create something that looks like it could be pretty interesting.
At Giant Squid, we believe that video games can be more than a pastime – we strive to create artistic games that deliver beautiful, meaningful, and timeless experiences to a wide range of people.
Nava's not alone: He's dragged former thatgamecompany alumni with him, adding Grammy-nominated gaming composer Austin Wintory to the fold, and bringing flOw game designer Nicholas Clark on board as an advisor.
The team is looking to expand further, with a beautiful website calling for a Studio Manager and a handful of Engineers. As well as, obviously, having mad skillz, Giant Squid is looking for candidates to fit very specific criteria. Must love Lego and Hackers, and it would be good if you loved dinosaurs "or similar extinct megafauna".
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
