One of the world’s largest mobile gaming companies, Wildlife, announced today the formation of its new studio, Never Forget Games. The first of many studios the Wildlife team plans to sign on, Never Forget Games is headed by gaming industry veterans Ray Mazza and Michael Duke. They will develop its games using Wildlife’s game development and publishing platform. 

Ray Mazza is popular in the gaming industry for his leading roles over a decade on “The Sims” series, within EA. He also served as Lead Systems Designer for “Vainglory” at Super Evil Megacorp. Most recently, Mazza independently developed the highly successful puzzle game, “Merge Dragons!”, which was acquired by Zynga in 2018.

About Never Forget Games

The new members of the first line of employees of Never Forget Games sounded more than enthusiastic talking about this new project. “We’re bringing together superstars to push the boundaries of creativity and fun with the formation of Never Forget Games, building unforgettable gaming experiences,” said Ray Mazza. “Ray and I had a lot of choices when deciding who to partner with for our next endeavour. Wildlife was perfect because we have full creative control without any of the headaches of starting our own company. We get to focus on what matters: making games,” complimented Michael Duke.

We want to be the company that honours talented game creators the most, and that makes it easier and faster for them to create the games that will mark our generation, we are investing in our publishing infrastructure, enabling developers to concentrate solely on making great games.

Victor Lazarte, CEO, Wildlife

On the heels of Never Forget Games creation, Wildlife has also made two key executive appointments. Sean Boyle, former CFO at Amazon Web Services, joins as COO. Robby Andrews, the founding member of the Instagram growth team, joins as Head of Publishing.  “The addition of Sean and Robby to our executive team brings the experience we need to continue scaling the organization,” said Wildlife CEO Victor Lazarte, talking about his team.

As of now, Never Forget Games looks like a great line-up of industry veterans who can carry the organization forward. We’ll see how it goes for them in the industry in the next few years!
