Intuitive Game Studios created by former LA Noire and Whore of the Orient developers

IntuitiveGameStudiosLogoTwo former Team Bondi and KMM Interactive developers have started new indie game studio Intuitive Game Studios in Sydney, Australia.

Both founders, Alex Carlyle and Kelly Baigent worked on LA Noire before Team Bondi closed and went on to work on Whore of the Orient at Kennedy Miller Mitchell Interactive.

“I really do want to stay in Australia and try and overcome the drive which is leading everyone to Canada or the like,” Carlyle told MCV.

Speaking to Polygon, Carlyle said the Australia indie game scene is seeing an “encouraging expansion,” due to the growth of backing from State and Federal government funding and support from the Game Developers’ Association of Australia.

“Here in Australia one of the things we do well is creating work for ourselves, and there are some great examples of us thriving at this,” Carlyle said. “I’m proud to be joining this community and contributing towards a sustainable industry.”

The company has yet to reveal any games its working on.

Whore of the Orient, a 1930s detective game, still exists after its developer KMM Interactive, largely made up of former Team Bondi developers, laid off members last month, according to KMM Interactive’s Doug Mitchell who spoke to MCV.
