As part of his new consultancy business, ex-Team17 boss Martyn Brown has hooked up with Middlesbrough's mobile and handheld developer Double Eleven.

Double Eleven is currently at work on a number of titles for Sony Computer Entertainment, with Brown acting as a consultant after officially leaving the Worms creator two weeks ago.

"I am incredibly chuffed to assist, advise and help inspire Double Eleven, who are hands-down one of the most exciting, driven and highly capable development teams I've had the fortune to meet in years," said Brown.

"I have absolutely no doubt that Double Eleven will be amongst the UK's most high-profile and successful development studios within a very short space of time."

Double Eleven was started by two Rockstar Leeds developers, Lee Hutchinson and Matt Shepcar, last year. The pair have previously worked PSP titles Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Liberty City Stories and Beaterator.

Added Hutchinson, CEO of Double Eleven: "We're really looking forward to Martyn's assistance. Everything at Double Eleven has been going so fast for us that it's hard to keep track of things at times.

"Martyn's experience and expertise are no doubt going to help keep things running smoothly as we look towards future plans for development of our own IP."
