Tony Takoushi has been working in the games industry for more than 30 years, working with various studios including Sega Europe, Codemasters, and Australia’s own Halfbrick (creators of Fruit Ninja). Now though, he says the time has come to branch out on his own.
…so he’s done just that, kicking off his own independent studio, Total ArKade Software, based in Brisbane.
Takoushi explains that the new studio “just made a lot of sense”.
I started in the games industry in 1979 and it’s very exciting to be setting up an Indie development team at this time with so many opportunities to innovate and create quality titles in the mobile space.
I want to give players the same gorgeous art, great audio and compulsive gaming they would recognise from Halfbrick productions, along with some very innovative gameplay, as you’ll see in our first title shortly.
Total ArKade Software‘s debut release is as-yet untitled, but Takoushi promises he’ll bring plenty of exciting content, great art and unique characters to the table, giving gamers something “new and fresh” to explore. It’s due out soon on iOS, Android and Bada – and we’ll bring you all the details as soon as we have ’em.
