So, after 17 incredible years of co-birthing and building Media Molecule, I have decided it is time for me to fly the nest – set sail and chart a new course – today is my last day at MM. From LittleBigPlanet to Dreams and beyond – proud to have played my part and lucky to have jammed with some truly brilliant people – and such a wonderfully talented community which I will continue to be a fan of.
But a strong cosmic breeze is pulling me and my pirate heart is awakened. I’m not getting any younger so am going to indulge myself in the winds of my various curiosities for a while and see where they take me.
So here’s to new beginnings, following one’s heart and exploring the unknown – yo ho ho and a bottle of rum – I’m off on a Pirate adventure! One that involves making games, that is.
Before you shiver your timbers and assume that Healey is off to join Rare for Sea of Thieves, that’s probably not the case at all; his LinkedIn profile lists him as ‘self-employed’ and ‘open to work.’
Interestingly, news of Healey’s departure comes less than a week after Media Molecule announced that it was pulling live support for Dreams in September.
