February

premier game development companies on all platforms. The company has grown to
50 people in 2000 and plans to almost double its staff in 2001. With four
titles on track to release this year, Sandbox is seeking more qualified and
experienced programmers and artists. 

 

Ubi
Soft, Konami, Havas, Sierra On-line, Mattel and TDK Mediactive have game
development deals with Sandbox. More game development deals will be announced
soon. Sandbox will develop titles for Playstation 2, Microsoft’s Xbox, Game
Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, Playstation and the PC. 

 

TDK
Mediactive and DreamWorks recently announced that Sandbox is developing a game
based on the upcoming movie Shrek for the Xbox. 

 

Sandbox
Studios Canada is based in London, Ontario, where the company has established
a staff of game industry veterans. "Our highly talented and motivated
team of artists and programmers are working hard, and have hit every milestone
on time or early, which is truly amazing in our industry," says Sandbox
Studios Canada’s Director Gary Corriveau. "But we still need more
talented people as we grow." Members of its staff previously worked at
Silicon Knights, Ubi Soft, Microids, Tose and other development houses
bringing a wealth of experience. "We’re putting together four new teams
in 2001 to develop next generation console titles," says Corriveau.
"We’re really excited about the positive response from our publishers for
the quality of our games."

2000, Sandbox completed six titles: Disney’s Emperor’s New Groove, Sierra
On-Line’s Hoyle Card Games, Konami’s ESPN NHL Hockey, and Frisbee Golf for
Game Boy Color, Disney Interactive’s Dinosaur for PlayStation, and Mattel
Interactive’s Matchbox Emergency Patrol for PC.
