June 2, 2010: Turtle Rock Garage
Turtle Rock Studios announced today the start of its small games division: Turtle Rock Garage. This division will be focused on casual and experimental games, such as those found on the iPhone, Facebook, and XBox Live.
"The team here at Turtle Rock Studios is constantly coming up with fantastic little game ideas. These are games that we would love to see realized just as much as our larger scope projects. It would be a shame to throw these ideas out just because they're not part of a big project," said Phil Robb, the company's Art Director. "Turtle Rock is dedicated to creating fun, high quality games, plain and simple. A couple of our guys have been able to create a great product in short order, with more on the way. We started Turtle Rock Garage to give games like these a place to become reality."
"Look for great things to come from both Turtle Rock Studios and Turtle Rock Garage in the near future. We've got a lot of really cool things in the works." - Chris Ashton, Design Director
Turtle Rock Garage's first release, "Leap Sheep!" will be a game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. A fast and fun action game for all ages where players compete on Plus+ for high scores and woolly awards by leaping an ever growing flock of sheep over that stalwart of all obstacles: a wooden fence!
