Designer, consultant and GamesIndustry International columnist Will Luton has joined mobile games developer TinyCo.
The company is based in Vancouver and San Francisco and makes games such as Tiny Castle, Tiny Pets and Spellstorm.
"I wanted to take the leap over the Atlantic with my partner and I wanted to be back making games with global reach," said Luton on his blog.
"That meant joining an organization with a scale that would allow me to create games for a billion people and a company whose future I could shape and believe in."
Luton recently released the well-received business book Free 2 Play: Making Money From Games You Give Away.
