Thatgamecompany co-founder Kellee Santiago has left the company, and will soon be followed by others, according to a new report on Gamasutra.
The studio co-founder, said in a statement that she was now looking for a new challenge using the experience she has gained from developing games such as Flow, Flower and Journey.
“After doing these three games, I think it was a really great opportunity for all of us to look at what we’ve learned and what I’ve taken from that experience, and go forth and take it into new arenas,” she said.
“On top of that, founding a company whose explicit goal was to do new types of game development really allowed me to be able to try out new processes for game development, to try out new ideas.
“So much of my work at Thatgamecompany was really supporting Jenova’s visions for the types of games he wanted to make, and I felt like I have done everything I needed to do there, and that he’s in a great place now to go on and continue with some of the other people at Thatgamecompany, to take that to a whole new height.”
Gamasutra claims that others may also leave the studio soon, although we’d expect it to carry on developing great games, even with these people moving on.
