Totally Games Expands With Announcement Of New PSP(TM) System Action Game in Development
NOVATO, CALIFORNIA (DECEMBER 7, 2005) Totally Games announced today plans to expand its Marin County, California studio with the announcement of a new game project signed with SEGA of America. The technically ambitious and imaginative project will recruit new staff - a move that reaffirms Totally Games' continuing commitment to be a world-class development studio. Lawrence Holland, President and Founder of Totally Games, is confident that growing its studio will allow it to follow-up its phenomenal success on games like the X-Wing series with even more outstanding games for both current and future consoles.
The newly signed PSP(TM) (PlayStation(R)Portable) system project features state of the art 3D graphics in a run and gun blast-a-thon for the PSP system, drawing its inspiration from such timeless arcade classics as Robotron and Smash TV. Players must navigate through expansive and exotic environments while blasting their way through hordes of rampaging monsters. This game will challenge players' reflexes and concentration like no other product on the PSP system.
Over the next month Totally Games will be posting a number of new job openings covering the gamut of skills and specialties necessary to create a top tier, "totally involving" game. Anyone looking for an opportunity to make a difference on a game project, to be a major contributor instead of a cog in a machine, and to work with an experienced team in a flexible, innovative, fun Marin County work environment should join Totally Games. It's a place where they can make great games and significantly develop their careers. Job seekers should check the TG job page at: http://www.totallygames.com/jobs/index.htm
