Co-Founder Of Thatgamecompany Starts A New Journey

Posted on Thursday, March 29 @ 08:13:10 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Six years ago, Kellee Santiago co-founded Thatgamecompany along with Jenova Chen, and the small indie game studio captured the world with flOw, Flower, and more recently, Journey. But Kellee has said that it's time for her to go on a new journey, and she's leaving her game studio.

In an interview with Gamasutra, Kellee said the following:

After doing these three games, I think it was a really great opportunity for all of us to look at what we've learned and what I've taken from that experience, and go forth and take it into new arenas. 

On top of that, founding a company whose explicit goal was to do new types of game development really allowed me to be able to try out new processes for game development, to try out new ideas. So much of my work at Thatgamecompany was really supporting Jenova's visions for the types of games he wanted to make, and I felt like I have done everything I needed to do there, and that he's in a great place now to go on and continue with some of the other people at Thatgamecompany, to take that to a whole new height.

Kellee has not said where she is going, but she did say that she wants to continue working on expanding the video game medium. Chen also wishes her the best of luck, and continued to say that he hopes they work together again.

We at Game Revolution also wish you the best of luck, Ms. Santiago, on your new journey.
