It is currently comprised of Nava himself, Nicholas Clark, and Austin Wintory. Nava, as we know, was the art director for two of thatgamecompany’s most popular titles and will hopefully bring us the same kind of artistic gaming experience we’ve come to know from his former company.
Nicholas Clark is a game designer and engineer who worked on Flow, Flower, and Journey. He’ll be acting as an advisor for Giant Squid.
Austin Wintory is the studio’s composer and has a Grammy nomination under his belt thanks to his work on Journey. Here’s to looking forward to his amazing music in future Giant Squid games.
The studio isn’t working on any projects at the moment, but they do have a blog section on the site that will hopefully be chronicling the development of any new titles. We’re looking forward to seeing what Giant Squid will produce and wish them luck on their endeavors!
