APB concept artist forms a new studio

Montynero to stay in Dundee

One new studio has already risen from the ashes of the defunct Dundee developer Realtime Worlds.

Character and concept artist Jimmy O'Ready has formed a new studio named Montynero offering character design and concept art services to developers.

O'Ready explained the move to Develop Online: "The character art for APB was praised by the industry, thanks to a strong team effort over many years. For my part I'm interested in basing this company in Dundee, which is a great city full of talent, and collaborating on the next generation of game art with companies across the globe."

He added on the passing of APB: "Personally I felt delays in a couple of crucial areas meant APB simply missed its moment. I salute all the developers involved though, we had some superb people working incredibly hard."
