Resolution Games CEO Tommy Palm has spoken on this. "Tom is one of those who have most contributed to shaping what became of video games today, ”he says. And to continue: "We are delighted to have him with us and are impatient to see the role he will play in helping us define this environment".
Tom Hall, meanwhile, shared that he had been very drawn to VR and AR for a long time. He even says he has designed its first VR game in 1992. More recently, he has focused on a few prototypes for virtual reality. Therefore, when the opportunity to join Resolution Games arose, he immediately jumped at the chance.
If the studio does not specify exactly which titles Tom Hall will work on, we nevertheless know that several games are in preparation. However, it starts with Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale and Blason. The first is in the spirit of the games already offered by Resolution Games. While the second takes them out of their comfort zone with a PvP shooter in gun duel mode and slow down. The latter therefore seems perfectly suited to Tom Hall's environment of expertise.
