A new, independent studio, Ovosonico (try saying that ten times fast), founded by Massimo Guaring, director of Shadows of the Damned, has signed a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Europe. Together, they will be working on “new intellectual property.”
Massimo offered up his thoughts on the new deal:
There has never been a better time to contribute to the growth of the video games industry. Ovosonico aims to challenge convention, to push the boundaries further and expand out medium by delivering innovative, emotionally engaging games that deeply resonate with people. SCE Worldwide Studios Europe understands out vision and we are thrilled to partner with them. We strongly feel that they are the perfect partner for us.
Michael Denny, Senior VP at SCE WWSE and a busy man after the PS4 was unveiled, talked about Sony getting more exclusives:
We’re incredibly excited to be working with such an innovative new studio as Ovosonico. It is through working with creative minds such as Massimo Guarini that ensures that the best exclusive games are only available on PlayStation and we firmly believe that this relationship will result in something special. This is the first studio we have worked with in Italy and due to the growing talent in this country; we believe the first of many.
