Today newly formed company Postcard Game Studio announced that it has received a $3.5 million seed investment.

"Knowing the game we're going to make alongside the studio and culture we're building, this will provide us with an opportunity to take our years of experience to the next level, especially with the support of Smilegate, who is helping to achieve our vision," said Almaden.

Joining him is a leadership team comprising of narrative director Ariadna C. Martinez, studio technical director Glen Darroch, and lead designer Justin Lippert.

Completing the group is lead environment artist Martin Teichmann, lead level designer Dan Callan, lead producer Tommy Blashaw and Lizzie Siegel as lead quest designer.
