The studio, Lockwood Leamington, sees the publisher double down on mobile gaming. With plans to grow over the next year and develop some compelling content for Avakin Life Lockwood Leamington is also searching for new staff.
Ollie Clarke, co-founder of Modern Dream, will be heading up the new office. Clarke joined lockwood last month and has said that the decision was an easy call to make. Speaking with gamesindustry.biz he comments that, "I'd known Halli and Joel for a while and always enjoyed speaking with them and hanging out at various events."
He continues, "knowing their background and seeing their achievements, they're an inspiration to me.”
“A chance conversation led to us talking seriously about setting up Lockwood Leamington. Importantly, we felt we shared key values and ambitions around an array of subjects and ideas. After meeting the amazing team in Nottingham, seeing the work they're producing for Avakin Life and its potential to expand - joining them became an easy decision."
With Leamington Spa being such an up and coming area for the UK games industry. It is a great place for a new studio to lay down in roots.
