Recommended Posts




The Sumo Group has acquired The Chinese Room, the UK developer of Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.


The Chinese Room will now be part of Sumo Digital, its fourth in the UK and the fifth worldwide. Dan Pinchbeck, one of the founders of the studio, will take the role of creative director, while his co-founder Jessica Curry will continue her work as an independent composer.


"Sumo will provide the support and experience I'm looking for to take The Chinese Room to the next level," Pinchbeck said in a statement. "Our aim is to build on the reputation I'm proud to have earned, to create a truly world-class studio delivering bold, imaginative new games."
