While Riot Games seems to be shedding developers left and right these days, one good thing that’s come out of this is the formation of several new game studios with ambitious and motivated teams. One such studio that just appeared on the scene is Odyssey Interactive, a new company that’s aiming to build competitive games for mobile platforms.
These former Teamfight Tactics developers have already raised $6 million in seed investment with an eye on making games for the next generation of players. Odyssey was born from a desire to work in a small-team environment, so the co-founders say that they don’t want more than 20 or so members filling out the Canadian studio. The motto of the company is “Games You Live.”
No specific game projects have been announced, but the studio hopes to eventually work on multiple games simultaneously.
“Competitive games often come with the stigma of having toxic communities, but we believe that by being very intentional with core design decisions from aesthetics to game features, we can create experiences that invite players from all walks of life in, and not intentionally exclude them in the pursuit of top tier competitive play,” the studio said.
