L.A. Noire first released back in 2011 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and later that year it came to PC. With legendary company Rockstar Games behind the developer wheel and Team Bondi in charge of developing the game the world was buzzing. But even though the game released to mostly critical...

Review - South Park: The Fracture But Whole

Everybody know the story of South Park by now and if you don't then you should really look it up as it is an amazing story of two people who took a holiday greeting video, with paper-cut stop motion video and made it into one of the most, if not the most, important cartoon experiences since the...

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor came out of nowhere and quickly claimed its rightfully place as many gamers and gaming websites' number one game back in 2014. It was also one of my personal favourites that year. It wasn't the story that made it so compelling but the “nemesis system” which they...

WWE is not what it once was, it used to be the number one TV show, it killed of rival its rival wrestling shows WCW and ECW and became the only place for wrestling for years. But times have changed, and the UFC has grabbed most of the hardcore wrestling fans and WWE is seeing its worst years as...

Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

  As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers...

Review - Agents of Mayhem

Review - Agents of Mayhem

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and...

  The people behind Worms, Team 17, surprised me with the release of The Escapist and since then I have been addicted to the game. So I wasn't hard to convince when I was asked if I was interested in reviewing The Escapist 2

Studio Gets Kajfa Tam As Its New Technical Art Director, Famous For Work On Assassin's Creed Series

Created on Tuesday, 18 March 2014

assassins creed revelations-wide

Tam comes to Improbable directly following a high profile role at Ubisoft, where he not only headed up the technical art team at Massive Entertainment working on games including Assassin's Creed: Revelations and upcoming next gen title Tom Clancy’s: The Division, but worked on the new Snowdrop engine and was responsible for making his team an efficient, versatile and sustainable creative force that could tackle any project.

 JC2

An industry veteran, and expert in his field who has served as a guest lecturer at several institutions including the University of Gotland, Tam previously worked for a number of world class studios including Avalanche and Lionhead Studios and on hit games like Just Cause, Just Cause 2, Fable 3 and Fable The Journey.
The Swedish Technical Art Director will bring his unique creative and organisational skills to his role at Improbable, working on as yet unannounced projects being fashioned with a unique approach and bespoke technology.

Tam comments, “I’ve spent many years within the game industry working with multiple technologies and engines, but the unique offerings here at Improbable are unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I'm very excited and humbled that I’ve been given this opportunity and together I believe this team can help shape the future of Improbable, and maybe even change the way people make and play games in the future."

This latest hire represents part of Improbable’s continuing drive to source the best talent from all over the globe to fuel groundbreaking work being done at the London based developer.

Those efforts will continue this week at GDC, with the developer meeting a wide range of international talent and committed to ensuring they can make the transition to the UK as easily as possible once they join the studio.

"Moving your entire family to a different country is not easy, especially if it's a young family,” said Tam, who has a one year old with his partner. “But Improbable has a friendly and supportive family oriented mind-set that has really helped us. That, and a healthy industry ethos that aims for a better work-life balance, has made our transition easier.

Herman Narula, Improbable CEO added “I’m delighted Kajfa has joined the improbable team here in London and excited to see the impact of his unique talents and approach on our work as we continue with our projects. It’s talented people from all over the world like Kafja that will turn the ground breaking concepts we’re working on into reality, and I’m looking forward to meeting more people like him at GDC.
