Part of the team was part of Typhoon Games and Journey to the Savage Planet, a project that they will now rescue.
It is always good news that a new video game studio is formed, and that is what we have come to tell you about. In addition, it has a curious story behind it. Typhoon Studios, the developer studio of Journey to the Savage Planet, will surely sound familiar to you. One of the games most affected by the closure of the Google Stadia studios, as it resulted in the dismissal of workers and leaving several bugs active for the adventure that were pending to be solved. The Mountain View company acquired the company in 2019 to be part of the teams working under its umbrella.
Now from the ashes of this failed adventure comes Raccoon Logic, a new studio that will be based in Montreal, Canada. And that, in addition, it recovers the license of Journey to the Savage Planet to continue working on the title that was left half, as well as on new projects. In addition, the Chinese company Tencent has invested in the project, financing the company, so they will have the resources to do great things.

“We’re excited to be back in the indie space, making the games we really believe in with an amazing new team. Tencent’s initial investment is a huge boost. We love systemic games, games with a sense of humor and a big heart, and games with strong flavors that provoke reactions from the players, “says one of their managers,” says Alex Hutchinson, creative director of Raccoon Logic. We will have to wait to find out what else they will come up with.
