For immediate release

A new Console game company called The Game Crowd has been created in Nottingham to focus on the next generation of console gaming.

The Game Crowd CEO Rik Alexander stated “We’ve always loved making console games and we think the timing is right for a new company to take advantage of the next generation and the creativity they enable. Having recently acquired the award winning racing technology that was used by the Monumental Racing Studio where there was a huge investment in the technology, tools and pipeline, we’re in perfect shape to be able to focus on that creativity and deliver some truly outstanding original games”

The new company already has deals in the pipeline and is looking for a publisher for its original off-road racing game due for delivery in Q4 2015. Rik added “We’re actively talking to and seeking potential publishing partners about how our concepts could fit into their release schedules and we’re always interested in talking to businesses that have a need for amazing next-generation content”

The Technology currently sits on X360, PS3 & PC and is being augmented for both Xbox One & PS4 with iOS & Android in the pipeline. It features a rich racing heritage with the award winning and critically acclaimed MotoGP series. The Game Crowd is investing in enhancing the engine focusing on the character, multiplayer and environmental aspects initially.

Alexander went on to say “Handheld devices are becoming more powerful and though may never catch up with next-generation consoles output due to the power consumption behind those platforms, we do envision a future where the similarities between devices becomes less noticeable to the player and helping to make that a reality is that’s one of our longer term goals”

The sister company AppCrowd is working hard with a number of publishers on IP driven titles which have yet to be announced.
