Yes, that Adam Orth.
505 Games has announced that it will be partnering with Three One Zero to release ADR1FT, first person experience focusing on an astronaut looking to survive an event that wrecked the space station. This means gathering resources and prepping an emergency vehicle for escape. The most interesting aspect is that Three One Zero is founded by Omar Aziz and Adam Orth, the latter who formerly worked at Microsoft before a controversial tweet caused him to resign.
Ian Howe, president, 505 Games “The Three One Zero team epitomizes the tremendous passion and creativity of independent game development. I’ve wanted to publish ADR1FT from the moment. I first saw it at DICE; we’re looking forward to working with Three One Zero to deliver a bold new gaming.”
Orth stated that, “I’m very happy to be partnering with 505 Games for ADR1FT. From the very beginning, Ian Howe and his team have passionately understood the game Omar and I are trying to make. They have empowered us with the freedom to explore and create something special with ADR1FT, both traditionally and with VR technology.
“It’s clear from games like Payday 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and some of their upcoming titles that 505 is not afraid to take chances and give gamers something fresh and new. That’s important to us. That’s what we’re all about. We’re excited to be part of that.”
