It seems as if Haden Blackman has been quite busy since leaving LucasArts during the summer. Our good friend Justin wrote in to let us know that Blackman has now started his own develpment company called Fearless Studios.
"Independent Developer Co-founded by Haden Blackman and Cedrick Collomb will Combine Creative and Technology Leadership to Create Impactful Story-Driven Games
MARIN, CA – October 14, 2010 – Fearless Studios, an independent developer, today announced its formation, executive team, and financial partner. The Marin, California based developer has been co-founded by award-winning writer and game director Haden Blackman, creator and Senior Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and noted technology leader and strategist Cedrick Collomb, formerly Director of Engineering at LucasArts.
“At Fearless Studios, we believe great videogames should leave a lasting impression, an indelible mark on players, our industry, and even the wider culture,” said Haden Blackman, Co-President and Chief Creative Officer of Fearless Studios. “By taking bold creative risks and tackling new challenges, Fearless Studios will fuse the best of story and gameplay to immerse, engage, and affect players just as deeply as our favorite films and novels.”
“Fearless Studios will marry compelling content with the most advanced game technologies and software, crafted and customized specifically for the experiences we want to create,” said Cedrick Collomb, Co-President and Chief Technology Officer of Fearless Studios. “We’re not building technology for its own sake; we want everything we do to show up onscreen to entertain the player—that’s all that matters to us.”'
