With regards to working with FOG Studios, Stan Miskiewicz had the following to say:“We first met with Ed Dille from FOG Studios back in 2006 at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. It wasn’t long after that that we decided FOG would be a great partner in terms of growing our pre-existing business development efforts. Though it took a while for the stars to align I’m excited that we’ve connected with such a great partner and I’m looking forward to what we’re going to be able to do together.”

FOG Studios CEO and co-founder Ed Dille added,“Representing Black Point Studios was an easy decision right from the start. This is a studio that has cemented its place as the go-to shop for absolute mission critical outsourcing work in the interactive industry. You can only build that level of responsibility and trust by bringing the level of quality in their craft that Black Point Studios does, and the repeat business relationships they have developed with major publishers are a testimony to that accomplishment. Despite downward pricing pressure in the broader outsourcing marketplace, when AAA major investments are being made, customers look for quality, timeliness and unparalleled customer service as determining factors, not the lowest possible bidder. Black Point has these characteristics and work ethic deeply ingrained in their corporate culture, and we are proud to be offering their services to the world.”

FOG Studios will begin promoting Black Point Studios as early as the Game Connection show in Lyon next week. If you would like to arrange a meeting to discuss working with Black Point or any of the other client’s in FOG’s roster please contact sales@fogstudios.com.
