“David [CEO of Noodle Cat] and the Noodle Cat team impressed us with their commitment to reinvent the way the games industry approaches the development process.”Jay Chi, Founding Partner, Makers Fund
“It’s a great time to try and figure out how we should make games, not just now but in the future. A lot of the practices we have in making games have stayed the same for the last few decades … we put a lot of effort into providing satisfaction and motivation for players, but we don’t put the same into how we build our own processes.”David Hunt, Co-founder, Noodle Cat
In order to prepare for work on the company’s first game, an original IP, Noodle Cat is now hiring.
“We like to tell people we want their best, not their most … we’re trying to make a structure that is built around every person being able to work in the time and space and method that will give us the best of their skills and creativity.”David Hunt, Co-founder, Noodle Cat
