Singapore’s Mighty Bear Games lands senior ex-Bigpoint and Bandai Namco devs

Singapore-based developer Mighty Bear Games has brought in two former senior developers at Bigpoint and Bandai Namco.

Ex-Bigpoint creative director Jan Richter will lead development on a second title for the studio.

Former Bandai Namco senior game engineer Pauline Pun will lead Might Bear’s engineering team and help prepare the team for the worldwide release of its debut title.

Big backers

The hires come shortly after the company completed a multi-million dollar seed funding round back in June 2018.

The investment was led by US backers Skycatcher, Everblue and M Ventures, and also included Singapore’s Atlas Ventures.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jan and Pauline to the team,” said Mighty Bear Games CEO Simon Davis.

“They’re world-class talents with 13 years experience in gaming and technology each. They will be playing critical roles in helping the studio get full steam ahead on our first and second titles.”
