Ex-Bizarre Staff Form ‘Lucid Games’

Following on from the closure of Bizarre at the end of last week, some ex-staff have gone on to set up their own studio. Called ‘Lucid Dreams’, it will be based in the North West of England and is already packing some serious talent (guys behind Geometry Wars, Project Gotham Racing, and Blur).

They are looking to expand though, and “are committed to hiring character, hiring talent and training skill.” They are already in talks with several publishers with regards to future projects, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store.


Good news for those involved as we, like many others, were sad to hear of Bizarre Creation’s closure. We doffed hats, remembered nights with their titles fondly, and ultimately wished the creative folk at the now defunct Activision-owned studio well. There was even a montage of poignant game footage from the developer set to melancholy music.
