Ex-Criterion Oskar Guilbert founds new studio in Paris

Oskar Guilbert, ex-CRITERION Software, founds DONTNOD Entertainment with world-renowned art director Aleksi Briclot and award-winning science fiction author Alain Damasio.

“We aim at becoming a major, reliable actor in the game development scene and a pleasant partner to work with”, Guilbert commented.

The independent, Paris-based studio develops AAA games for next-generation consoles and far-reaching cross-media products, based on original concepts and innovative technologies.

In 2008 DONTNOD Entertainment won the French Innovative Companies Competition prize for its cutting-edge 3D real-time fluid simulation technology.

DONTNOD will be presenting its first title to Publishers at GDC in March 2009.
