Matt Cavanagh announces new independent studio

Bizarre Creations

Bizarre Creations is a medium sized video game developer based in Liverpool, England.

Established...

bizarrecreations.com

Blur lead designer and former Bizarre Creations employee Matt Cavanagh has formed a new independent studio, Totem Games.

"Formed by ex Bizarre Creations Matt Cavanagh, Totem Games is joining all the shiny new indie games companies in their mission to make the world a happier place," stated the studio’s official Twitter page.

Little has been revealed about the new start up, but so far it seems to be a solo project, with the company registered only to Cavanagh.

Cavanagh was made redundant after the closure of Bizarre Creations in February. Since then there has been a number of studios formed by ex-Bizarre employees, including Hogrocket and Lucid Games.
