Two Hearts! Joinin’ in our game grind…

Postby karashata » Fri Nov 27, 2015 11:33 am

From the Playtonic website, in case anyone here isn't following their Twitter and/or doesn't check their site frequently for new news:

http://www.playtonicgames.com/two-heart ... ame-grind/

A very brief summary, two new faces have joined the team, Catarina Barros, a programmer, and Dan Murdoch, a sound designer/engineer.

A Crash Bandicoot fan! That's a nice spin on things, especially with Yooka-Laylee's release on the Playstation. She can hopefully help with all those strange X's, Circles, and Triangles. I wonder if she ever played Banjo.

There is one thing that I need to ask though: I know that Playtonic Games was founded by six people first, but who's really the main leader of this indie studio?

On their website they have Chris Sutherland listed as the project director and Gavin Price as the managing director, so if I had to guess, those two are probably at the helm steering the ship, but I don't think they really look at their roles as leaders and more as just another part of the team (considering Chris is also a software engineer and Gavin's also the creative lead on the team).

Right, I almost forgot. What I was thinking was how every member at Rare had their creative freedom. It made it feel like there was no leader, and somehow, that's how they flourished.

I'd say Gavin is technically the guy in charge. I'm pretty sure he was the one who made the original Mingy Jongo twitter a few years ago and spoke about wanting to make a spiritual successor to BK.

But as others have said, I get the impression Playtonic is a really relaxed company -- a family. They're all in it together for the love of making games.
