March 10, 2016 Orange County, Calif. – A Premier developer of video games for all platforms, Blind Squirrel Entertainment, Inc. has been newly formed through re-capitalization and incorporation in Delaware. Blind Squirrel Games, the multidisciplinary development studio housing game industry veterans with experience at some of the world’s best developers and publishers, is now a subsidiary of Blind Squirrel Entertainment, Inc. The company is headquartered in Orange County, California and currently employs more than 100 employees.
