Kellee Santiago joins Google Play Games team

Kellee Santiago, co-founder of thatgamecompany and former Head of Developer Relations at Ouya, has announced via Twitter that she has joined the Google Play Games team.

Santiago is best known as an advocate for the artistic and esoteric side of game development, first with Journey studio thatgamecompany and latterly working with the niche Ouya development community.

New challenge

Exact details of her new role at Google Play Games are yet to be divulged, but it has been effectively confirmed that hers will be a developer-facing position.

"I'm joining the Google Play Games team in Mountain View!" tweeted Santiago.

"So stoked to continue working with the awesome Android developers community."

Following shortly after this tweet was a photograph of Santiago with some of her former Ouya colleagues, now based at Razer's San Francisco office following the acquisition, with the caption "My last day."

"Will miss working alongside this amazing team!" she added.

Features Editor

Matt is really bad at playing games, but hopefully a little better at writing about them. He's Features Editor for, and has also written for lesser publications such as IGN, VICE, and Paste Magazine.
