Novel’s orientation is to both make innovative consumer videogames and leverage videogame technologies for business application.
Our management team includes seasoned leaders from the design, production, engineering and art disciplines within the video game space. This team has collectively held leadership positions on over 20 shipped titles which have sold tens of millions of units from companies such as Microsoft, Bungie, EA, Playdom, Gas Powered Games and other industry leaders. In total, the core leadership shares over a half century of professional video game experience.
Novel (pronounced nov-uhl like a book) literally means something of a new kind, different than anything seen or known before. We chose this name for our company because we are going to change two established industries in a way that has never been attempted before, and that we believe will have a profound, positive impact on the world.
