Ex-EA Vets Form Atomic Robot Games


Industry veterans formerly of Electronic Arts and Black Box Games announced today the formation of brand new independent development studio, Atomic Robot Games.

By embracing cutting edge in-house tools and engines, Atomic Robot Games is focusing on pushing the boundaries of what the industry thinks of as standard.

Chief Operating Officer Christopher Davis said, “These guys … have created some amazing and hugely successful titles making us a supremely well-built team of top-notch game veterans.”

Tristan Grimmer, Chief Technology Officer, said, “We’ve developed a proprietary engine and in-house tool-set that will allow us to create some remarkable game-play experiences.”

Creative Director, Ken Thurston, says, “These guys are like family – we have a lot of history. From Black Box to EA with titles like Need For Speed we’re veterans in the industry, and we know our stuff! Since day one our mantra has been ‘game play first.’ At Atomic Robot Games that will be the creative foundation for all our titles. I’m very excited.”
