Let's all give a warm welcome to Dark Water Studios, which has just officially opened its doors. The Northern Ireland developer is headed by industry vet Mike Brown, with former Acclaim man Paul Houbart named as technology manager, and Rory Fellowes, another vet, on board as lead animator. Dark Water currently totals 10 employees, with a goal to reach 25 by the end of the year.
The studio is developing a multiplayer PC title, partially funded by DETI, the economic development branch of Northern Ireland's government. Dark Water is also working on a prototype project for PC and consoles.
