Shiny Entertainment founder David Perry, who resigned from the now Atari-owned developer
in February to apparently help faciliate its sale, has launched a new video game consultancy agency named GameConsultants.com.
Perry, who is also on the Advisory Board of the Game Developers Conference, has announced that his agency will "be providing customized advice & services delivered confidentially to clients by some of the biggest names in the video games industry."
It is unknown how this move will affect the continued future of Shiny Entertainment, which was founded in 1993 by Perry, and produced the hit Earthworm Jim
series, as well as the financially successful Enter The Matrix
, alongside other titles including MDK
The studio was sold to French publisher Infogrames by Interplay in 2002 for an estimated $47 million, before the company bought the rights to the Atari name and logo, and was developing
a new Earthworm Jim
title at the time that Perry left - it is unclear whether the title is still being developed, though Atari announced the license acquisition
for "next-generation handheld and online systems" at last week's E3 Expo.
