Before Your Eyes makers found new studio Nice Dream Games

The co-creators of BAFTA-winning Before Your Eyes have created a new studio called Nice Dream Games.

This new venture was founded by Graham Parkes (pictured) and Oliver Lewin, who are joined by a number of staff who worked on the aforementioned project. Nice Dream's first game is going to be a narrative adventure called Goodnight Universe and is set to be published by Skybound, as Before Your Eyes was.

“The success of Before Your Eyes showed us that there is an audience of like-minded people out there who seek out games to emotionally engage them in ways other mediums simply can’t,” said Parkes.

“We founded Nice Dream Games to continue to make games for that audience, which push the limits of what interactive storytelling can do.”

Skybound managing partner Ian Howe added: "We are so excited to work with Graham and Oliver and the talented team behind Nice Dream Games again. We are incredible admirers of their creative use of technology to deliver first-of-its-kind gaming experiences. Both Skybound and Nice Dream are dedicated to bringing compelling stories to everyone and feel that interactive entertainment is a medium capable of conveying powerful stories that can't be told any other way. Before Your Eyes is a prime example of this, and Goodnight Universe is shaping up to be yet another boundary-breaking video game."
