Google’s reluctance to get involved in anything game-related is well documented, but the company’s stance in that area seems to be slowly changing. Following AR MMO Ingress from Niantic Labs, the search giant has now hired veteran game designer Noah Falstein to head up an as yet unknown project. The only details, gleaned from the dev’s LinkedIn profile, point to an Android project.
Noah Falstein’s resume is as long as it is impressive, covering over twenty years in game development with the likes of 3DO, LucasArts and Dreamworks Interactive, but as TechChrunch speculates, Falstein’s background with “serious games” – games that tackle political and social issues – might be the expertise Google needs.
