Expansion continues at new Oddworld studio

UK studio Just Add Water has added two new senior members to its tech team.

Steve Caslin and Paul Carter, former freelancers at the studio, joined full-time at the start of October and November respectively. Both men now hold the positions of technical leads on various, yet-to-be-revealed projects.

The hires are part of ongoing recruitment as work increases on the studio’s upcoming Oddworld projects.

“Working with JAW over the past year or so has been a fun, now seeing the changes due to the Oddworld projects mean it’s now the perfect time to be part of the core team here at JAW,” Caslin said.

“It’s not often you get a chance to work on one of the most recognised franchises in gaming history.”

JAW MD Stewart Gilray welcomed the new arrivals, saying: “Having Steve and Paul join us now is perfect. We’re currently completing work on the first of the Oddworld projects, and in the New Year we will start pre-production on the next project.”

“As this project will be from the ground up we wanted to get key personal ready to jump on it from the start, and to continue expanding the team with other programmers and environmental artists.”
