Featuring credits from signature titles like The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077, a number of industry veterans have come together to form the new game studio Blank.
The studios’ inaugural project will be a character-driven game set in an apocalypse, complete with twists.
Mateusz Kanik, Blank. Co-founder and Game Director said the following:
“We’re thrilled to announce Blank. and to start expanding our incredible team. After working for years in an increasingly conservative industry, we’re ready to make bold, impactful projects that share our unique creativity and values. Where the industry champions a dictatorship of the creative individual, we want to give ownership to the team. Where the industry leans on crunch culture, we prefer work-life balance. Where the industry says bigger is better, we’re setting our sights on highly polished games with a focus on emotion, story, and craftsmanship,”Mateusz Kanik
Marcin Jefimow, Blank. Co-Founder and Executive Producer, added:
“Our game development philosophy comes from our own stories and experiences. With Blank. we want to build a space where we can honor our histories, but also be playful and open to brand new inspirations as we collaborate creatively. We’ve already got a head start on a budding new project that we can’t wait to share with players and craft with new team members.”Marcin Jefimow
Jędrzej Mróz, Blank. Co-Founder and Executive Producer added:
“Over our many years of making games, we’ve seen the importance of marrying inspiring ideas with well-defined scope, that’s supported by a strong team and realistic budget. We’re committed to quality craftsmanship and running the studio in a sustainable way; we plan to increase our projects’ scope as we expand the team and its capabilities.”Jędrzej Mróz
Headquartered in Warsaw, Poland, the studio currently has 10 team members. However, they look to expand to nearly 60 people to support development of this unannounced project – all those interested can learn more on the official Blank. website here.
