Media Molecule

Media Molecule co-founder and art director Kareem Ettouney is leaving the company, the developer announced this week.

Ettouney is leaving the company in early 2023, and the developer will stream with the art director on January 17th, 2023 to see him off and celebrate his tenure at the company.

The developer was founded back in 2006 by Kareem Ettouney, Alex Evans, and Mark Healey. Considering that Evans also left back in 2020, the only co-founder left is Healey.

Here’s the full message::

Kareem Ettouney, Media Molecule’s co-founder and Art Director, has decided to move on from Media Molecule.

Since day one, Kareem has been essential in defining the look, the feel and, without a doubt, the very ethos of who we are and what we do at Media Molecule. We are forever grateful for everything he’s done for us and our community. He’ll be leaving us in early 2023.

It wouldn’t feel right for Kareem to depart without a personal goodbye to the community, so we’ll be streaming live with him on 17th January 2023. We’ll be looking back at his time at Media Molecule and checking out a few of his personal Dreams highlights. He’ll see you there!

The company’s latest game, Dreams, has been available for PlayStation 4.
