Thatgamecompany co-founder takes on new role at Android games team

Kellee Santiago quits Ouya for Google

Google Play Games has hired Kellee Santiago, who leaves the team at Ouya.

Santiago is best known as the co-founder and former president of Thatgamecompany, the studio behind the acclaimed Journey, Flower and Flow. 

She left the firm in 2012 and joined Ouya a year later. She will be leaving her position as head of developer relations to join Google Play Games.

As is often the case these days, Santiago announced her departure via Twitter, following an official announcement at the GI Summit, according to GamaSutra.

It’s not clear what role Santiago will take on.

Troubled microconsole firm Ouya was purchased by Razer earlier this year, following months of rumours about the deal.
