The 10th Birthday Bit
FuturLab was born on November 12th 2003, a company with a goal to create interactive art to entertain and challenge in equal measure. I thought it might be nice to explain why it’s called FuturLab.
The fine art course I studied encouraged analytical thinking, applying objective reasoning to creativity whenever possible, and whilst I couldn’t draw, paint or sculpt to save my life, I was good at thinking about art, spotting rules in systems, and subverting those systems to find exciting new rules.
I wanted to create artistic entertainment, and even then was passionate about someday working with PlayStation. I guessed it was probably going to take a while to get there, but was determined to define my own future.
A ‘laboratory for designing the future’ sounded bold and brave and ambitious, and something worthy of committing years of effort to.
It has taken a long time to get here, but now we’ve got an amazing team of talented people, and our game is coming to a PlayStation home console!
What better release date than our 10th anniversary? 😀
Thanks very much to our team, our fans and the people at Curve Studios for making this happen!
