Narrative-focused mobile game developer Fusebox Games has announced it has launched a new studio in Los Angeles. Experienced writer and producer Michael J. Cinquemani will lead the new studio as Chief Content Officer.
Cinquemani’s primary mission will be to create new, original stories for Fusebox and lead the development of the new studio. In addition, Cinquemani will team up with Fusebox’s goal of becoming a mobile game studio based in Los Angeles.
Michael J. Cinquemani has also previously written and produced TV series. Cinquemani’s portfolio includes many famous projects such as Brothers & Sisters, The Vampire Diaries, Jane the Virgin, Awkward, and General Hospital.
Cinquemani has been involved in various activities in the playground for the past six years. During this time, the author served as a story consultant to many game studios and worked as the Principal Narrative Designer for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
Wil Stephens, Founder and CEO of Fusebox Games, said:
“Michael’s appointment is a core part of our commitment to our players to bring them even more exciting and engaging narrative-based games on mobile. With Michael’s support, we can build on and expand our relationships with TV studios in the UK and US to make this a reality. With his breadth of experience running writing rooms, and mentoring writers and narrative designers, he will bring a fresh creative voice and passion for telling compelling stories to our future titles.”
Michael J. Cinquemani commented:
I’m thrilled to join Fusebox Games to expand on their existing expertise in the development of narrative-driven, mobile games, with great brands like Love Island, as well as actively seeking out new IPs and creating original Fusebox Games titles. The creation of the Los Angeles studio is our next key step to becoming a leading developer of interactive fiction across the US and UK.
Our core goal at Fusebox Games is to entertain, so I’ll be looking for the best storytellers to grow both the narrative team in London and build the new team in LA from the vast talent pool available there. Together we’ll create aspirational stories that give people an outlet to live, love, risk, and dream big.”
