THQ Warrington vets form new studio

Alien Apple Studios to offer a broad range of design and development services

Three former staff of THQ Digital Warrington have started a new game design company, Alien Apple Studios.

All three team members held senior roles at THQ: Paul Dolan was senior concept artist, Donna Jennett was lead UI artist, and Stuart Jennett was studio art director.

"Our small creative team has a proven history together and hail from a long heritage of entertainment design ranging from video games development, comics, movie and illustration work," a statement on the company's website reads.

"Our key objective is to offer studios across the entertainment industry a broad range of truly creative conceptualisation and design skills."

THQ Digital Warrington, the publisher's only UK studio, was closed in June, making around 45 people redundant.
