Dreamgate Studios - A new Australian Studio
Dreamgate Studios officially opens its doors today in Canberra. A new development studio delivering Entertainment, Simulation and Utility applications direct to consumers as well as to Government and the corporate sector across a variety of platforms including PC, iOS, and Android.
Managed by industry veterans with more than 40 years experience between them, Dreamgate is looking to buck the trend of large scale closures and redundancies that have been plaguing the Australian industry over the last couple of years. Through a combination of self funded development and publication along with project work for both industry and non game industry clients that require the specialist skills that only game development can deliver on, Dreamgate Studios will adopt a long term strategy that focuses on staff retention and company culture; The philosophy being that the right environment and team are the most important aspects of any high quality, creative product.
Vicki De Margheriti, CEO of Dreamgate Studios said:
I see a wealth of opportunity for growth in the Australian game development industry. As CEO of the Academy of Interactive Entertainment I see a huge number of very talented developers graduating each year, hence AIE's new AIE Incubator Program. It is an exciting time in Australia's game development lifecycle and I am happy to be adding to this buzz with Dreamgate Studios, a boutique studio for iOS development, as well as fee for hire development services.
Dreamgate Studios has experienced business leadership and provides an opportunity for developers to join a newly formed studio that is in a great position to meet the online games, virtual worlds and simulation needs of local and international businesses and government.
James Sutherland, Head of Studios for Dreamgate Studios said:
As Head of Studios for Dreamgate my primary focus is to build a strong yet flexible team that will allow us to create a culture that is ripe for developing innovative Games, Simulations and Applications regardless of client or platform. I know the talent is out there and I also know there is a huge demand for game industry skills and experience to be used in areas that include Defence, Medicine, Mining and Retail as well as the more obvious iOS, Android, PS3 and Xbox 360 "marketplaces". The challenge as with most things in life is finding the right people to pursue these opportunities, so if anybody is interested I encourage you to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
