Whore Of The Orient to be McNamara's next game

Mad Max filmmaker George Miller has acquired the rights

The latest project for Brendan McNamara, the outspoken former head of Team Bondi, will be titled Whore Of The Orient. The game was revealed by filmmaker and KMM Interactive owner George Miller.

According to the Australian Financial Review, Miller "has also acquired the rights to Team Bondi founder Brendan McNamara's next game, Whore Of The Orient."

Miller is best known for Mad Max, but Miller's KMM became home to a number of Team Bondi staff after the studio closed following the release of the critically acclaimed LA Noire. He calls McNamara a "brilliant mind."

McNamara himself mentioned the project in an interview with Eurogamer earlier this month, calling it "one of the great untold stories of the 20th Century". He also revealed it would a similar to size to LA Noire.

Miller is also working on a new Mad Max game, and spoke about the way games and films had become part of on package.

"Multi-platform, that's the thing," says Miller. "Create once; publish many times, on multiple platforms. You create a world and then you go in to all the different platforms - your iPhone, your iPad, on the net," he explained.

It also explains that development for Miller's Mad Max game was set to happen in Sweden, until Miller saw the work of Team Bondi.

"What's fascinating, though, is that Team Bondi immediately went to work on Happy Feet Two. People can move from a game to a movie and be completely at home, because it's the same skills, process - the same game."

McNamara became the centre of a working practices controversy when internal emails from the Team Bondi studio were leaked.
