Former Ubisoft Devs Split Off To Start The Game Bakers

Former Ubisoft developers Audrey Leprince and Emeric Thoa, two award-winning video game developers, are announcing the formation of a new France based game studio, The Game Bakers, dedicated to crafting AAA quality games for mobile platforms.

Having worked on AAA titles including Tom Clancy’s EndWar and Splinter Cell Double Agent, Leprince and Thoa are accustomed to building traditional console games that require 200-person teams, millions of dollars, and years to develop. With The Game Bakers, the duo will focus on smaller scale, more agile creative projects that will take advantage of the opportunities afforded by touch devices and the exploding mobile market. They have been joined by senior developers and talents from the video game world and the comic book industry.

The Game Bakers are currently working on Squids for mobile platforms, PC, and Mac. In this epic adventure game, the player recruits a team of misfit squid to banish the Black Ooze from the seas. More details will be revealed in the coming months, with a release planned for Autumn 2011.
