Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Retro Studios hires New Super Lucky’s Tale and Crysis 3 devs

The Texas studio’s latest hire is New Super Lucky’s Tale designer Mark Capers from nearby Playful.

Capers has previously acted as a designer for Epic Mickey and its sequel, so he will be familiar to a number of fellow Junction Point veterans already present in Retro’s design team.

Retro’s second new design hire is James Beech, a designer who has worked on several titles including Crysis 3, DC Universe Online and Eternal Darkness 2, the canned sequel to Silicon Knights’ GameCube exclusive.

Both Capers and Beech will be environment designers in their new roles at Retro.

Makes me more eager to know what they're up to. :)



Now if only they'd actually, you know, fucking produce something.

6 years now with zero to show for themselves. A competently run studio could've put out two games in that time.



I didn't think there would be a direct this week, cos I'm a pessimistic dunce.

I try to take whatever positives I can out of this. I'd like to see what kind of environments they can make at Retro. :)

Yeah, tbh that's probably the healthier approach. I'm endlessly frustrated with Retro's ridiculous now six year drought, but I'll only make myself feel worse by ruminating on it. 

At the very least they've certainly amassed some significant veteran talent over the past year.

Some times we just have to wait and see.

Believe me, I'm trying to be patient, not just with Retro but with Nintendo's current lack of upcoming releases in general, but given my current predicament it's not easy.

Big blockbuster incoming from Retro with Metroid Prime 4 at this rate ...

I lost patience with Retro in the Wii U era thinking they were making another game alongside DKC : TF. I bet they canceled like 3 projects lmao.
