Some former Ubisoft and Eidos employees have banded together and formed a brand new independent games studio.
All the news after the jump!
Tribute Games, a new independent games studio has been formed by a few former employees of Ubisoft and Eidos. Here’s all the news from one of those employees himself.
Johnathan Lavigne had this to post in a blog,
” Jean-François Major, Justin Cyr and I have been working together for several years and we also developed Wizorb together during the past 6 months. So, we decided to join forces and form our own video game company. Justin is an awesome pixel artist, animator and aspiring sound designer and Jean-François is our mastermind programmer.
We chose the name Tribute Games because when we make games, we want to pay tribute to all the cool games from our childhood. We’re passionate indies aiming at making entertaining games with a focus on pixel art and classic game design (sometimes with a modern twist).
Our first game, Wizorb is coming to Xbox Live Indie Games in the upcoming month (the PC version will follow). Wizorb is actually going through the review process before being released on XBLIG. We don’t have a precise release date yet but it’ll materialize in the next few weeks.
I hope you’ll enjoy our games!”
Here’s the brand new Tribute Games logo that you’ll see accompanying all their games.
