Postcard Game Studio Secures Funding

New studio made of industry veterans.

Postcard Game Studio announced this week it has secured funding to the tune of $3.5 million from Smilegate. Made up of industry veterans from Naughty Dog, Bungie, Guerrilla Games, and 343 Industries, Postcard is being led by CEO Ray Almaden who readers may recognize from his design work on Far Cry: Instincts and Uncharted 4. Postcard Game Studio is currently hard at work on an unannounced open world first person shooter.

Our readers will of course recognize Smilegate as the Korean developer behind the recently released Lost Ark.

“Setting up an independent games studio has been a dream project for some time, providing our incredibly talented team with full creative freedom to design an ambitious video game,” said Ray Almaden, Founder of Postcard Game Studio. “Knowing the game we’re going to make alongside the studio and culture we’re building, this will provide us with an opportunity to take our years of experience to the next level, especially with the support of Smilegate, who is helping to achieve our vision. With their massive industry success and expertise in enabling developers to perform their best work, they’re truly the perfect collaborator.”

Key players at Postcard Game Studio also include narrative director Ariadna C. Martinez (writer, Horizon Forbidden West), technical director Glen Darroch (Rockstar, Blizzard, Turtle Rock Studios), lead designer Justin Lippert (Halo 4, Halo 5 and Halo Infinite), lead environmental artist Martin Teichmann (Crysis 2, Batman Arkham Knight, The Last of Us: Part II and Diablo IV), lead level designer Dan Callan (Halo 4, Destiny 2 and Forspoken), lead producer Tommy Blashaw (The Order: 1866, Lone Echo and Lone Echo 2), and lead quest designer Lizzie Siegel (Horizon Forbidden West).

Postcard Game Studio is currently hiring for more positions on their company website.
