Following their latest interview, Atomic Arcade has posted new job openings for his or her upcoming console title G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes.
The corporate now has a brand in addition to a model new description for the sport:
“Atomic Arcade is a brand-new video game development studio located in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area led by industry veterans from AAA game and film studios. We are in the process of staffing up our development team with outstanding talent to build our first multi-platform, AAA game – a bold, new take on the GI JOE Universe starring the legendary character Snake Eyes! This is an excellent opportunity to not only build an outstanding AAA experience but to also help form the core foundations for the studio and team to build upon. We are proud to be part of Wizards of the Coast which is a division Hasbro.”
Along with that, artistic producer and GM Ames Kirshen sat down with GamesIndustry for an in depth interview in regards to the sport and the corporate.
“I always had this great desire to tackle G.I. Joe and take a crack at making an amazing game with the IP because I think there’s a lot of potential there,” Kirshen says. “So long story short, we decided to build a studio to support that franchise, to support that game.”
That studio is the Raleigh, North Carolina-based Atomic Arcade. The sport is Snake Eyes, a AAA action-adventure title that Kirshen describes as “a much more edgy, contemporary, mature take on G.I. Joe to really suit what we felt we needed to have this IP and game resonate with a modern consumer.”
“It was a process of getting them comfortable with the direction we wanted to go with, that this is the type of content the market is looking for,” Kirshen says, “that people grew up with this IP and those who grew up with this IP back in the days of Real American Hero at its peak in the ’80s and ’90s are now fathers and uncles, and these are the mass consumers of these AAA consoles and PC platforms. And they want content that grows with them.”
