Gone HomeGone Home dev breaks off to form new studio photo



One of the founding members of The Fullbright Company, the studio behind 2013's love it or hate it Gone Home, has left to start his own studio. Johnnemann Nordhagen, a 2K Marin developer that worked on BioShock 2's Minerva's Den before moving to Fullbright, just opened Dim Bulb Games.

Nordhagen told Polygon "I feel right now is an exciting time for games, because there's all sorts of studios and people exploring the outer edges of what games can be." He added "The vision is for weird and wonderful things, perhaps tinged with melancholy and layered in dust, like an old lightbulb."

Nordhagen isn't yet ready to talk about any of the projects he has lined up, but promises that they'll be "exciting." As of right now, Nordhagen is the only member of Dim Bulb, but he's currently working on recruiting developers and collaborators for the studio.

Slender: The Arrival is out on PS4 and Xbox One today

Do people still think Slenderman is scary? I don't really know; it seems like the well-dressed humanoid has faded from the collective consciousness lately. Maybe it's just that I don't visit meme websites any more. Slender: ...more
