Phoenix, Arizona – August 25, 2014 – Nordic Games announced today that former pro motocross racer and game designer Stephane Roncada joined its Phoenix based development team, Rainbow Studios. Roncada was a factory Kawasaki rider and 250cc East champion. He began working in the video game industry fifteen years ago and had previously worked on the original MX vs. ATV games.
“I’m thrilled to return to the MX vs. ATV team at Rainbow Studios,” Roncada said. “I enjoy making video games tremendously, but to have the opportunity to develop motocross games again is extra special. It gives me the opportunity to bring what I found most fun and exciting about real racing to many people at home, who might not have the opportunity to race Supercross for real”.
“We are very excited for ‘Ron Ron’ to join our design team of former Rainbow Studios developers, designers and artists. Adding someone of this caliber who’s competed at the highest level of the sport will only ensure a very bright future for the series,” said studio head and MX vs. ATV Supercross Executive Producer Ken George.
About Rainbow Studios and Nordic Games
In April 2013, Nordic Games acquired the rights to the MX vs ATV franchise and quietly began work late last year on a new game with original team members from Rainbow Studios along with select other veteran developers in Phoenix, Arizona.
Rainbow Studios created the successful series of games which has sold over ten million copies since its first title, MX Unleashed. Rainbow Studios built their gameplay around groundbreaking open physics and Rhythm Racing™ where players learn to find the rhythm inherent the game’s jumps and turns and catch the natural flow of racing lines.
