A new TT Games studio will open in Brighton to develop LEGO games for mobile platforms.
TT Games is the studio behind all of the LEGO video games over the past 15 years, with the titles now published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Now, the company is opening TT Games Brighton, a studio that will develop LEGO games for mobile platforms. Jason Avent is the founder and former head of Boss Alien, and will be the Head of Studio for TT Games Brighton.
“There is a huge opportunity for LEGO games on mobile,” said Tom Stone, the Managing Director of 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.”
“I love LEGO, and I’m 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,” said Avent. “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.”
