    OTLGS: A Little History – by Jamie Daruwala - June 12, 2014

    On The Level Game Studios (abbreviated OTLGS) started in May of 2011, and it was the dream of the ownership to create something different with their first game.  While golfing on the US coast, owner and founder Jeff Reimert asked the obvious question, “What would happen if Vikings jumped out of the water and attacked us?”  Thus was born ‘The Curse of Nordic Cove’. I joined the company in April of 2013 as Director of Sales and Marketing when the ‘The Curse of Nordic Cove’ was coming out, and I was impressed with the creativity of the core team. Rikki Knight, a tattoo artist with a deep passion for gaming and comics, was (and still is) the day-to-day director at the studio.  Bunny D.A.S.T was an audio pro with over 20 years of sound and recording experience.  I quickly realized that this was a team made up of programmers, artists, QA, and audio that ownership had given the opportunity to cut its teeth and improve its abilities in gaming.  Only programmer Jeff Frank came from a large established studio, Lucas Arts.  Since day one, owners Jeff and Carolyn have been committed to giving each team member the opportunity to succeed in the video game business.
