Naughty Dog Co-Founders Become Monkey Gods

Naughty Dog co-founders Jason Rubin and Andrew Gavin have teamed up with fellow Flektor founder Jason Kay to create Monkey Gods, a new social gaming development studio.

Monkey Gods is a studio focusing on the development and distribution of games for social networks, the iPhone, and video game consoles. CEO Jason Rubin provides the creative vision; CTO Andy Gavin provides design and code; and Jason Kay, who joined the two during the creation of online media mash-up widget Flektor, will handle business strategy and operations as the company's COO. With more than 50 years of game industry experience, we can surely expect great things from Monkey Gods.

In the meantime, we'll just have to be satisfied with their first two offerings, Snood for the iPhone (coming June 1st) and MonkWerks, a word puzzle game for the iPhone and Facebook. From humble beginnings...
