Formed by ex Monumental Employees in the wake of the collapse of Monumental Games 2 years ago Legendary has successfully managed the transition from AAA Console and PC MMO to HTML5.  Now employing 15 full time and freelance staff the company has come a long way.

Ewan Lamont the CEO of Legendary Games said “Legendary Games has achieved a lot in two years.  We have published two games on Social networking sites, a teacher training educational game for Protocol National, developed several web sites and we have lead three large government funded R&D projects: creating an advanced analytics engine, an asset repository system and investigating the feasibility of reducing energy consumption in the home using an augmented reality game.

Legendary have released a podcast celebrating their achievements and revealing what they think about their most recent Kickstarter project Year O http://youtu.be/CwiNI6TE6Lc

Players will battle for survival and to mould the new world in their image. Not only do they need to scavenge for food and material to rebuild their world, they must also form alliances and fight the other survivors for scarce resources and territory.

Ewan Lamont added “It is sad to see local AAA studio closing I only hope that the success of Legendary can show that there is hope still for the industry “
