“Joining LFG as their international coordinator is a fantastic opportunity to expand the team into India, where there is a melting pot of talent and skill,” she said.
“Creating family-oriented games that incorporate such cutting edge video tech is a fascinatingly unique approach to game development and I can’t wait to get my sticky fingers into the projects.”
