New development start-up Dark Water Studios has opened its doors in Northern Ireland.

New development start-up Dark Water Studios has opened its doors in Northern Ireland.

The company is headed by Mike Brown, who boasts over 20 years of development experience, along with Paul Houbart, whose CV includes work at US Gold, Microprose and Acclaim.

"Starting, as we have done, with what was effectively a blank piece of paper has allowed us to build a thoroughly modern, 21st century game development organisation which is perfectly placed to take advantage of new production tools, methodologies and working practices," offered Brown.

"Our aim is to bring together the cream of available game-creation talent, by drawing from Northern Ireland's existing talent pool, by using the quality of life offered by this unique location to attract the cream of overseas talent and by making good use of the opportunities for outsourcing and remote working which modern technology allows," he detailed.

The studio is currently working on a multiplayer PC title part-funded by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI), as well as prototyping a PC and next-generation console project.
