TT Games is to open a new UK-based studio focused on creating new LEGO games designed specifically for mobile platforms.
Jason Avent, founder and former head of Boss Alien, will serve as the head of studio for TT Games Brighton.
“There is a huge opportunity for LEGO games on mobile,” said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games. “We’re extraordinarily fortunate to have acquired Playdemic in 2016 as a specialist in this area, and they’re working on a new LEGO title in addition to their phenomenally successful Golf Clash.
“Now we can grow our capability even further under the leadership of Jason Avent, founder of Boss Alien and creator of CSR Racing. Jason is one of the world’s most experienced and capable developers in this space, with a passionate affinity for LEGO and an incredibly exciting vision for the new team.”
Avent said: “I love LEGO and I am thrilled to be able to create new games encompassing all of the wonderful core values of LEGO, designed and built from the ground up for mobile.
“Our new titles will be accessible, exciting and of course, packed with the trademark TT Games fun and humour. We have an amazing new team of people in Brighton with a wonderful and unique opportunity to bring LEGO to life in a brand new way.”
