Ovosonico


Ovosonico (www.ovosonico.com) is the new games and music production company founded by industry veteran and former Grasshopper Manufacture Director Massimo Guarini.
The name “Ovosonico” is an Italian word meaning “sonic egg“.

Ovosonico is steadily based on a very precise and strong vision.
The entertainment business is rapidly changing into a blurred virtual space of different arts and disciplines converging together.
Ovosonico, thanks to the interdisciplinary experience of its members, embraces this convergence and goes with the flow.

Making games is rewarding, but creating real entertainment brands is a better strategy in the long term, both in terms of revenue and creative expression.

We understand the big limits of the old, traditional triple-A business model, and rather than opposing ourselves to the change, we embrace it, we take inspiration from it, coming out with new ideas.

Our mission is to create gaming experiences taking advantage of other media, our passion for music and pop-culture, and our keen eye for creative communication.

Ovosonico is definitely not the typical game development studio you would expect to see. It’s rather what every game studio should become in the next future in order to stay in the business.
Bold statement? We are born to be ambitious.

Ovosonico will deal with game productions for new emerging platforms (iOS, PSN, XBLA), as well as music and movies productions, eventually blending all these elements into a single entertainment product.

“I am glad to have this rare opportunity to contribute in a pro-active way to the growth of our industry, but most importantly to give players all around the world that fresh wave of oxygen they’ve been asking for a long time.”

Massimo Guarini
