We’re working on a review for ZHED, so I got in touch with Ground Control Studios to talk a bit about the game and its Nintendo Switch debut. Come check it out!
PS4Blog: Welcome! Thank you for joining us. Can you please help us get started by telling our readers a bit about yourself and your work?
Hey, it is a pleasure to join you guys! I am Rui Guedes, the founder of Ground Control Studios, which is an indie studio from Porto, Portugal. I started it myself a couple of years ago from a single desk on a co-working space. Now there are about ten of us, and we have our own office – it was one of those “we are going to need a bigger boat” moments.
In the first years of the studio, I did a bit of everything, but my core-skill was development, and I was the dev lead for a while. Now I focus more on managing things, especially biz dev, partnerships, investment, and on being the Producer for our game dev projects. In essence, I make sure that we have promising games/IPs to work on and the team/money to make them happen.
