Matt Nava, art director of the critically acclaimed Journey, has founded his own game studio. The new company, Giant Squid, operates out of Santa Monica, California, and will be focused on “games that deliver beautiful, meaningful, and timeless experiences to a wide range of people.”
Nava made the announcement on Twitter (via CVG) over the weekend. According to the company website, the studio was also co-founded by film and TV production house The Ink Factory, which seems appropriate for a company called “Giant Squid.”
Journey’s Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory and thatgamecompany lead designer Nicholas Clark are also on-board with Giant Squid. The studio is at work on its first project, which aims to be a “moving, compelling, and exciting experience.” So a lot like Journey, then.
