The game is being developed by a one-woman "studio" consisting of Charlotte Sutherland. Lord Winklebottom Investigates is my first big independent project.
I've previously worked on AAA games (Little Big Planet 3, SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed, Kinect Sports 2, LEGO Starwars: The Complete Saga, LEGO Batman, LEGO Indiana Jones) at companies such as Sumo Digital, Rare, EA and Tt Games, but am now working solo making my own more unusual and quirky games.
