Sharon Tal Yguado has announced the creation of her new game studio, Astrid Entertainment as well as the ‘high seven-figure pre-seed investment’ it received from investors, some of which are NetEase, Stardom Ventures, and Tower 26 Ventures.

Yguado told Polygon,

“All of a sudden TV felt a little safe, and repetitive, I felt the desire to do something innovative. I wanted to step out and push boundaries with a smaller team and more creativity.”

According to Yguado, Astrid Entertainment’s first game will not be an MMO, but a world where players will, while playing together, define their own experience. It will not have a linear story. She also added that she was not building a metaverse.

Astrid Entertainment is currently a remote studio, with a very small team. Yguado, who is the CEO, said that the studio will grow slowly and organically. Yguado also pointed out that they wanted to make an accessible game that inspires positivity.

As of now, there is no more information about Astrid Entertainment’s game.
