Thanks to a $75 million financing deal with the state of Rhode Island’s Economic Development Corporation, former Major League Pitcher Curt Schilling is now on the move.
You see, back in 2006, Schilling founded the entertainment and IP creation company “38 Studios.”
Its offices were once based in Maynard, Mass., but now 38 Studios is relocating to Providence, R.I. and doing so by taking advantage of that states Job Creation Guaranty Program, which targets companies based in knowledge and intellectual property sectors who wish to expand their business to the Ocean State.
38 Studios expects to develop a broad range of products, including on-line and console video games, toys, novels, comics, film, TV and other forms of digital media.
The move also coincides with the debut of the company’s first major action fantasy game, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Reckoning has a class system called destinies, which will allow the user the chance to play and evolve their character depending on what play style they like.
Schilling says that Reckoning is full of infinite possibilities, endless choice and distinctly fast and fluid combat which can be seen in game trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhoJ3NcoqO4&feature=pyv
