L.A. Noire, Whore of the Orient vets form Intuitive Game Studios

LA Noire, Whore of the Orient vets form Intuitive Game Studios
Two former Team Bondi employees established a new, independent studio in Sydney, Australia, called Intuitive Game Studios. Intuitive was founded by Alex Carlyle, design lead on Team Bondi's L.A. Noire, and Kelly Baigent, who worked on storyboarding for L.A. Noire and has a background in animation through Tui Studios.

Carlyle was also design lead on Whore of the Orient with KMM, the studio that bought Team Bondi after L.A. Noire. KMM laid off Whore of the Orient staff and shuttered the game's division in April, multiple reports said.

There's no word yet on what type of projects Intuitive will work on, but Carlyle said it will begin by hiring a small team as independent contractors, rather than building a full-time staff. The only hints we have so far as to Intuitive's direction is a shadowy Facebook profile picture and a single-page website.
