Mind Candy Acquires Games Studio Origami Blue

We’re hugely excited to announce that we’ve acquired games studio¬†Origami Blue¬†to launch our new innovation centre ‘Candy Labs’ down in Brighton.

Origami Blue was set up by ex-Disney Blackrock studios creatives Edd Smith, Mark Knowles-Lee and James Ovnik, who will come on board as full-time Mind Candy employees.

Candy Labs will be a research and development studio that experiments with new ideas to spin up the next wave of ground-breaking entertainment for children. The ideas will be a mix of digital and non-digital entertaiment. Some of the concepts will be acquired from third parties, but most will originate in-house.

Michael and the team have lots of new ideas bubbling away and can’t wait to see them come to life!
