Game development studio OtherSide Entertainment (@OtherSide_Games) announced a new strategic partnership with the Aonic video gaming group to continue to grow the studio and deliver original titles that take games to new levels of the studio’s signature “player agency” focus.
The co-founders of OtherSide, Paul Neurath and Warren Spector, are best known for their work pioneering the “Immersive Simulation” genre. Games like SYSTEM SHOCK, THIEF, and DEUS EX empower players to tell their own stories through their playstyle choices. The mission of OtherSide is to innovate and take this genre forward. Paul and Warren are just two of a larger team of talented and passionate game developers at OtherSide who embrace this mission.
“I am thrilled to closely partner with Aonic,” says Paul Neurath, CEO of OtherSide. “It is rare to have such tight alignment of vision with a partner. And in getting to know the Aonic team over the past half-year, we have grown to deeply respect their company culture and the caliber of their team. This is a new chapter for OtherSide, and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together with Aonic.”
“Great partnerships and great games arise from shared goals, shared vision, and shared values,” says Warren Spector, Chief Creative officer and co-founder of OtherSide. “Aonic and OtherSide come together with all of these factors in place. The Aonic mission of supporting the creation of innovative games is inspiring; the cooperative “family of studios” approach they’re taking to growth and collaboration is unique and smart; and their cultural values are in line with the kind of studio Paul and I wanted to create when we founded OtherSide. I see great things coming from this partnership, things that will surprise and delight players.”
“Aonic was created to be a partner that adapts to the needs of each studio to support them in the best possible way without taking away any independence. From the first meeting, we knew that Paul, Warren, and the whole OtherSide team would be a fantastic match for our collective. We are thrilled to see what synergies will emerge from this new and exciting partnership, and all gamers can look forward to the amazing games we will create together.” says Olliver Heins, CPO and co-founder of Aonic.
