TIGA, the trade association representing the UK
games industry, today announced Remode as their newest member.
Remode is an independent game
developer for online and mobile platforms.
Remode was established in August
2007. It began its life as a University start-up which has grown into a
thriving successful studio with a team of 12 highly skilled
people. They create their own games and
work closely with clients and partners to deliver high quality content to
monetise or market their IP.
Remode has now worked on 30+ games across multiple platforms and
technologies including Unity3D, Flash and HTML5, with clients including
Arkadium, GameHouse and TwoFour. Remode’s plans for 2012 are to continue to
work across various mobile and online platforms, but also to focus on browser
technologies, in particular HTML5, with their own IP and client projects. The team currently has two of their own
projects in development, one of which was last week named as a finalist in the
TIGA Games Contest.
Remode recently hired two industry veterans
to support the studio’s growth. Game
designer Alex Trowers, who started his career at Bullfrog designing games
including Dungeon Keeper and Syndicate, before moving on to studios including
EA and Black Rock is now Remode’s senior designer, and Chris Hebert, who
started out at Psygnosis before spending the last decade working with browser
technologies, has joined as senior programmer.
Ella Romanos, Managing Director
of Remode was listed in Develop's annual
talent spotlight ‘30 Under 30’ in 2011 as a rising star of the UK development
sector and one to watch. Ella also project manages and co-founded the highly
praised ExPlay Conference in Plymouth.
Ella will be attending GDC and
Game Connection America next week in San Francisco where she will be meeting
with companies to discuss opportunities for Remode’s games and work-for-hire.
Ella Romanos, Managing Director
of Remode explains the reason why she decided to join TIGA:
“Remode are delighted to become TIGA members because
we feel that it is vital to support the Trade Association that is striving to enhance the UK games development
Industry. TIGA have exciting plans for 2012 and we want to get involved as much
as possible over the coming year.”
Dr. Richard Wilson, TIGA CEO welcomed the organisation to TIGA:
“Remode is one of the most exciting new studios to emerge on the UK
games development scene. It has a highly talented team, ambitious management
and robust plans for the growth of the studio. In Ella Romanos, Remode has an
MD who combines a sound focus on her business with a strong commitment to the
wider games industry, as exemplified by her terrific work in founding and
supporting the excellent Explay Conference in Plymouth. We welcome Remode to
TIGA and look forward to working with them both in the South West and
nationally over the coming months.”
