I am in the process of creating a new studio here in San Diego. I'm currently working on designs and speaking with potential partners and teammates. More info to come soon. As much as I'd love to actually name the company BARTLET FOR AMERICA, my super smart lawyer assures me this is not the best of ideas. He is right...but I wish he was not :). But whatever name we end up with, I want the new company to be the game studio equivalent of the Bartlet White House: a place where passionate, driven, incredibly smart, and insanely talented folks- all with unique abilities and skills- come together to bring good stuff to the world. It's idealistic and corny, I know. But hell, it's how I feel. And if you are going to start a new company, why not try to make it a dream company?
