Interactive Studio Management (ISM), a representation firm dedicated to electronic entertainment, has announced that its newest client is Nihilistic Software, the California-based developer of Vampire The Masquerade: Redemption
and most recently Marvel Nemesis:Rise of the Imperfects
, released by Electronic Arts in 2005 on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
Nihilistic, which was also the original developer of long-delayed StarCraft: Ghost
, is currently working on a yet-to-be announced original PS3 and Xbox 360 title for release in 2007. The company joins Silicon Knights, Digital Extremes, and a number of other developers currently represented by ISM.
“We are genuinely excited about the relationship ISM has established with Nihilistic,” commented Dan Rogers, a senior partner at ISM. “Because of the substantial investment required to produce next-generation games, studios that can create triple-A titles are in high demand.”
Nihilistic's president, Robert Huebner added: “We are excited about our new relationship with ISM. Today's business environment demands full-time professional management and negotiation, especially as the stakes rise for next generation projects. We look forward to pairing our studio's unique artistic and technical assets with their long track record of success working with independent developers and top-tier publishers.”
