Splash Damage Recruits New Programmer from Ninja Theory

January 30, 2012 Written by Alex Osborn

Marc Fascia, the gameplay programmer who worked on Enslaved: Odyssey to the West over at Ninja Theory has been hired by Splash Damage to serve as the team’s technical director for the studio’s next major projects.

This new acquisition isn’t the first for the team following the release of their most recent title Brink. Just last week, former FIFA director Griff Jenkins was hired as the new director of production. With regards to hiring Marc Fascia, studio head Paul Wedgwood couldn’t have been more positive.

We’re hugely impressed by Marc’s combination of insane technical ability and project management skills. In particular its Marc’s obsession with fun gameplay and his personable nature that makes him the perfect person to lead our army of awesome programmers.

I’m really happy to be trusted with this incredible responsibility at Splash Damage. We’re working on some great things, and managing such a big and talented programming team, across multiple varied and challenging projects, is a wonderful opportunity. I love multiplayer and Splash Damage suits my passion perfectly.
