LA Noire Devs Break with Bondi, Form Indie Studio

Posted on May 28, 2013 AT 02:54pm

According to a report from MCV Pacific, L.A. Noire design lead Alex Carlyle and storyboarded Kelly Baigent have left Team Bondi and KMMM to form their own independent development studio: Intuitive Game Studios.

“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 told Polygon. “I’m proud to be joining this community and contributing towards a sustainable industry.”

Carlyle and Baigent’s departures follow last month’s layoffs at Kennedy Miller Mitchell, the studio behind Whore of the Orient, a detective game set in the 1930s. According to KMM co-founder Doug Mitchell, these layoffs have in no way impeded Whore of the Orient’s development.
