developers have announced the formation of WhiteMoon Dreams, a new Pasadena, CA based Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo Wii studio currently working with a "major Japanese publisher" on an unannounced title.
The company is led by former EA technical art director Jay Kootarappallil whose former work spans titles including Ratchet & Clank
and Medal of Honor
. Former Fallout
lead concept and game designer R. Scott Campbell co-founded the company and serves as its creative director.
In a release, the company said it intends to focus on original IP, but is also open to working with outside publishers on "interesting titles needing development." It also promises WhiteMoon Dreams titles "will be different through refreshing gameplay, new directions in the visual medium and content that engages the player's mind and hearts rather than just their hands."
Said Kootarappallil, "Our games are our dreams! We want to be in the worlds we're building, dealing with the situations we're creating, and being the characters that we're lovingly crafting. The moon (in our own personal way) signifies our love for the art of game-making. We love making games, we love the people who make them, and we especially love the people who play them!"
