Ian J. Bowden has joined the team as Art Director for the social and mobile games studio at the beginning of August.

In 1997 Ian J. Bowden founded Mobius Entertainment where he was Art Director “on over a dozen handheld titles with a couple of console games thrown into the mix” as he would put it. In 2005 Mobius became Rockstar Leeds, where Bowden left his mark on outstanding Triple-A productions such as Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories, L.A. Noire, GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3 and GTA V.

 “We are incredibly excited to have Ian onboard. His creativity and inspirational leadership will enable us to deliver the next generation of world-class SoMo games”, commented Todd English, Head of Studio Social and Mobile Games at GameDuell, on the hiring.

“After two decades in the field of core game production, I felt that the time was right to dive into to the exciting new business field of social and mobile games. GameDuell is positioned in a unique way for the opportunities out there and I am super-excited to have the chance to work with such an exceptionally talented team”, said Ian J. Bowden after his first few days in Berlin.
