Epic Acquires Undertow Creator




Epic’s vice president Mark Rein said of the acquisition, “Chair’s stylized approach to creating games is further enhanced by their ability to stretch our technology in new directions that not only helps in creating amazing gaming experiences but also demonstrates the power and versatility of the Unreal Engine. We are thrilled to bring the Chair team into the Epic family, and look forward to working with them to create original new games that continue to innovate and inspire."

In addition, Chair’s CEO Ryan Holmes added, "Our team has long admired Epic for its ability to shape the game industry with its innovative technology and first-rate video game offerings. We share Epic’s passion for creating ground-breaking game play experiences and are excited for the opportunity to partner with a truly visionary company."

Chair was originally founded in 2005 by Donald and Geremy Mustard. In addition to Undertow, the Mustard Brothers have worked on the Majesco-published, GlyphX-developed 2005 game Advent Rising. Chair also created the cross-media property Empire; Warner Bros is currently adapting Empire for film.

According to the statement released by Epic, Chair will keep its name and continue to operate creating "new original game properties which utilize Epic’s Unreal Engine technology."
