Brian Fargo är en kändis i spelbranchen och har jobbat med allt från Fallout till The Lost Vikings. Nu jobbar hans studio, Inxile, på ett ”Open World Survival RPG” i VR. Det låter det. Det tycker även Gumi, som nu lastat in 4,5 miljoner Dollar i studion. Gumis vd, Hironao Kunimitsu, tar även plats i Inxiles styrelse.
”Gumi shares my passion for creating deeper virtual reality games and I’m fortunate to have a partner to work with in this spectacular new medium. We’ve had incredible feedback from our first game, The Mage’s Tale, and we want to continue to build on our experience and reputation. I’ve always been fascinated by the social dynamics of the open world survival genre and experiencing that in virtual reality will create powerful and terrifying moments. We’ll also be bringing our storytelling and RPG experience to the table to help enrich the genre,” sade Brian Fargo, vd, Inxile Entertainment.
”Brian is a legend in the games industry, and inXile Entertainment has a track record for creating ground-breaking PC and console games that feel AAA in scope and size using their creativity, ingenuity, and ambition. Over the past year, they’ve brought in very talented and experienced members as they shift their strategy from single player to multiplayer online games as a service, and we look forward to seeing how they approach the space,” sade Kunimitsu. ”Since breaking into VR, we believe they’ve already delivered the best VR RPG game to date with The Mage’s Tale. We’re honored to become a strategic investor and partner with inXile, and delighted for the opportunity to work together on the next VR title with such a masterfully skilled team.”
