They've got the "great history of Bizarre" behind Lucid, declares managing director Pete Wallace. Hiring new blood "not about qualifications" but attitude.
Pete Wallace was a senior manager at Bizarre Games, but is now even higher up the executive chain at Lucid Games. "With the great history of Bizarre behind us, we are proud to be part of Lucid and are committed to the UK game development community."
"We plan to build a studio which encourages open communication with its partners, customers and other developers," continued Wallace. The new fledgling studio is already in talks with publishers about new projects they have planned.
"Our approach is to create for fun, quality and simplicity – it's how our games make you feel that matters to us," he said. "We are committed to hiring character, hiring talent and training skill." They want energy from staff and not just qualifications.
"It's not about qualifications or years in the industry, we are looking for creatives with a positive attitude and plenty of aptitude."
"If you are interested in being a part of something new and feel you can meet or exceed the standards you have seen in our previous games then get in touch." Bizarre Creations closed up shop after three months of no buyer being found by Activision.
Good luck Lucid Games!
