Tony Holmsten, formerly of Sweden now living in Japan, has been working as a video game artist since 2002 at two of Sweden’s biggest studio’s, Battlefield developers DICE and the now-defunct Grin.
Game designer (and musical maestro) Simon Viklund has had some adjusting to do over the past few years, watching a game series he was once a driving force behind end up in the arms of another man. Well, team.
Our Swedish friends weren’t just working on a Final Fantasy project when the studio went belly-up last year. A former GRIN artist has posted concepts from a ninja action/adventure game, and it sounds like it was a new IP.
