Guru Arcade─the two-year-old interactive division of Canada’s Guru Studio─has a new creative director in gaming artist Lyndsey Gallant.
Gallant’s appointment comes as Guru Arcade ventures further into the original IP space, having just recently launched its first original iOS game, Pop Rocket Rescue.
With more than 20 gaming titles shipped to her name, Gallant recently developed and designed games at Toronto’s XMG Studio. At Guru, she will offer creative oversight and artistic leadership to the growing division, which was established to create interactive companion products to Guru’s TV series, which include Justin Time and Dinopaws. The group is led by led manager Urmi Bardhan.
