Ex-Bizarre devs form Lucid Games

Bizarre Creations is no more but some former big brains behind the Liverpool studio have just formed Lucid Games and they're hiring more developers.

They've got the "great history of Bizarre" behind Lucid, declares managing director Pete Wallace. Hiring new blood "not about qualifications" but attitude.

Pete Wallace was a senior manager at Bizarre Games, but is now even higher up the executive chain at Lucid Games. "With the great history of Bizarre behind us, we are proud to be part of Lucid and are committed to the UK game development community."

"We plan to build a studio which encourages open communication with its partners, customers and other developers," continued Wallace. The new fledgling studio is already in talks with publishers about new projects they have planned.

"Our approach is to create for fun, quality and simplicity – it's how our games make you feel that matters to us," he said. "We are committed to hiring character, hiring talent and training skill." They want energy from staff and not just qualifications.

"It's not about qualifications or years in the industry, we are looking for creatives with a positive attitude and plenty of aptitude."

"If you are interested in being a part of something new and feel you can meet or exceed the standards you have seen in our previous games then get in touch." Bizarre Creations closed up shop after three months of no buyer being found by Activision.

Good luck Lucid Games!

Didn't anyone play Project Gotham!?
This was a damn solid company. I think one of the main reasons it went down was because it kept getting crap publishers. I mean just look at their last game 007: Blood Stone, which was published by Activision. Very solid game (wished it was a FPS though), but Acti barely even acknowledged that game. Heck, I didn't even know it was in the works until I saw it in a store! Same thing happened with Singularity. An awesome game that no one even knew was out.
Activision pretty much threw them out the door. :(
