Google now has a 'Chief Game Designer' in Noah Falstein
Haven't heard of Noah Falstein? That may be the case, but you've probably heard of some of his work -- everything from arcade gem Sinistar to adventure game classic Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. Well now he's working on another thing you've heard of: Google. According to Mr. Falstein's LinkedIn profile, spotted by TechCrunch, he recently became "Chief Game Designer" at the "Don't be evil" company -- but what could that mean?
Nothing yet, as additional information isn't available, though we've reached out to both Falstein and Google. Our friends at TC are suggesting something more "serious games" focused, or perhaps something involving Niantic Labs' Ingress MMO, but it's all up in the air at this point. A cached version of Falstein's LinkedIn reveals his new gig as chief game designer "at Android Play Studio," which ... well, that's the first time we've heard that name as well. For now, know that Google's got a game industry vet leading up something involving games at the company.
Update: Google confirmed to Engadget that Falstein joined the company, but won't say what he's up to just yet. We'll let you know more as soon as we do!
