Google Hires Noah Falstein

Noah Falstien, of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis fame, has been hired by Google as their 'Chief Game Designer' for their new Android Play Studio. Unfortunately, the news is a bit sparse so far, as There's no word yet on what games he'll be making for the studio (or anything else really, beyond his title).

But, it should be interesting to see what comes from this though, at the very least.

    This is surprising and exciting! Falstein is known for heavily advocating and defending "serious games", but Google is most probably intending to develop games that are more in the casual arena, which is what sells the most on smart phones. Still, it's great that someone of his experience and caliber is leading such an endeavor.
