Two highly experienced directors who worked at THQ’s UK studio when it closed last month have launched a new outsourcing company.
Jamie Campbell, THQ Digital Warrington’s technical director, along with development director Stephen Powell, have joined forces to open the independent outfit D3T.
Both have considerable experience in the games business – more than 25 years’ worth combined – and believe they can offer valuable services to other studios.
D3T – based in Cheshire – offers game design, development, porting and bug fixing services across a range of platforms including mobile.
“After the closure of the Warrington studio, we saw an opportunity,” Campbell told Develop.
“With the games industry moving towards a more transactional and contracting basis rather than permanent roles, we saw the added value we could offer to employers by allowing them to contract an elite group rather than having to find individuals who were available, reliable, capable and affordable.
“For studios who feel they need extra programming and development resources, or for clients looking for end-to-end product development, we’re here to help.”
