The lights are on
Matt Nava, former thatgamecompany member and art director for Flower and Journey, recently left the critically acclaimed studio, and now we know why.
Nava officially announced the formation of Giant Squid on Twitter with a link to the studio's website. Currently, the studio has no announced projects, but their mission statement makes it sound like you can expect the same sort of art-focused games produced by that game company. The mission statement reads, "we strive to create artistic games that deliver beautiful, meaningful, and timeless experiences to a wide range of people."
We'll have to wait to find out more, but anyone with games like Flower and Journey on their resume is certainly worth paying attention to.
