AM2R Creator Joins Ori Developer Moon Studios

It was announced today that the creator of AM2R, Milton Guasti, has joined the team at Moon Studios, who are now hard at work on Ori and the Will of the Wisps, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Ori and the Blind Forest.

Moon Studios actually saw Guasti's talent from the work he put into AM2R, as he announced on Twitter about his hiring, noting, "it's a special day for another reason".

Milton Guasti, known around the world for being responsible for Project AM2R, has seen his luck turn for the best. This has given plenty of people the chance to experience AM2R, which takes the original Game Boy visuals and mechanics and updates them to look more like Super Metroid.

On the NEOGAF forums, co-creator of Ori and founder of Moon Studios, Thomas Mahler, expressed that Milton is an awesome talent. Given that Guasti has extensive experience breaking the genre down to its meat and bones, he's a ideal fit for Moon Studios. Sounds like Guasti just cemented his dream job. "I gladly accepted the offer. I feel like I'll be right at home working with this team", Guasti writes on his blog.

Though it's not his beloved Metroid and he isn't working at Nintendo, Guasti appears wholeheartedly enthusiastic about this new beginning. While the developer, Milton Guasti, could not continue work, he recently shared some good news regarding future projects. The sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, was outed previous year prior to E3 but did not make an appearance. The series' first title, Ori and the Blind Forest, is out now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
