Today was the formal unveiling for a new game development studio based in Italy called, Lunar Great Wall Studios. Their sights are set firmly on providing the best, creatively unique gaming experiences to players across the globe.
The studio was founded in May 2016 by CEO Marco Ponte, a 15+ year veteran of the games industry. With the support of Jinglebell Communication, they aim to combine expertise, creative talent and technology.
Check out the video below to get an inside look into the studio, its team and what they look to achieve.
Marco Ponte, CEO of Lunar Great Wall Studios commented: “We’ve had a fantastic first-year, securing over one million euros in funding, allowing us to come to the point that we’re ready to reveal ourselves to the world.” He continued, “We’re all very passionate about what we do and always look to work on products which take a different direction from traditional design and genre. We’re very excited to be working on our own original IP to be announced in the near future, which is an innovative ‘emotion-driven’ multi-platform projects where fun, art and culture are the protagonists”
The game industry veteran has more than 25 published titles to his name across a variety of platforms and has recruited a strong team of professionals who share his vision for the company and are all driven by their passion for the industry. That has been a motivating factor in Ponte investing in the future of the gaming industry, with bespoke courses designed to usher in a new generation of talent.
Ponte continues, “Lunar Great Wall Studios is to be more than a developer; a catalyst for growth in our industry. Our investment in talent isn’t limited by our studio, but driven by it, with courses designed to be accessible. Featuring guests from other developers, we’re excited to allow a point of entry for anyone that wants to break into the games industry.”
The studio will be making games for all major platforms including PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch, as well as for the mobile market. Two titles are currently in production and we look forward to hearing about them over the coming months and/or years.
