Traveller's Tales vets form Quantum Soup

Welsh studio established in partnership with S4C

Two veterans of Traveller's Tales, Chris Payne and Ralph Ferneyhough, have formed a new studio in Carrog, Wales in Partnership with Welsh language TV channel S4C.

Quantum Soup will focus on narrative-driven experiences, capitalising on the fifteen year partnership shared by Payne and Ferneyhough at the LEGO series studio, where they worked on a total of thirteen games together. Between them, the co-founders have 42 years of industry experience.

"We've been mentoring local talent as the northern arm of the Games Wales group for several years," said MD Chris Payne, "so it's very exciting to be taking our own advice and starting a studio here to create our own games."

The team is yet to announce its first project, but expects to be able to say more in September.
