Blinkmoon is a new independent studio founded by a veteran of EA, Ubisoft, and Insomniac, Troy Dunniway, and noted Hollywood VFX artists. During Dunniway’s 25+ years in the gaming industry, he was a lead designer at Insomniac, a creative director at Ubisoft, a game director at EA, and a studio creative director at Microsoft. Dunniway’s credits include the original Fable, Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, Rainbow Six Vegas, and Ratchet Deadlocked, a spinoff of the popular Ratchet & Clank series.
Mohsen Mousavi is another co-founder of Blinkmoon. However, his experience comes from the film and TV industries. Mousavi is best known for his work doing visual effects for Game of Thrones from 2012 to 2019. He also has VFX credits on the 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street remake, The Amazing Spider-Man, and the 2018 shark flick The Meg.
Blinkmoon CEO Hugh Behroozy is another co-founder with a lot of experience in film and TV VFX. Like Mousavi, he has credits on Game of Thrones and The Meg. He also worked on both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, 2017’s Justice League, and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Behroozy will be in charge of the overall creative vision, growth, and development of Blinkmoon and its projects.
“I’m proud to bring this team of exceptional creators together to bridge the gap between blockbuster, cinematic experiences, and interactive gaming,” said Behroozy. “Everyone at Blinkmoon is a gamer and storyteller. We want our games to not only be fun but to also inspire and promote inclusivity in our player community.”
Blinkmoon has yet to announce any games, but it’s safe to assume whatever they schedule will benefit from so much combined experience. From the developers’ comments, it also sounds like they’ll be working on narrative-driven projects with a high level of production value to go along with plenty of fancy cinematics and visual effects.
