Splash Damage appoints Fable II lead designer

Ham brings with him a wealth of experience, most recently from his time as lead designer on Lionhead’s Fable II, and as creative lead on Sony’s best-selling shooter franchise Syphon Filter.

In joining Splash Damage, which developed Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Ham will lead the design team currently working with Bethesda Softworks on a yet to be revealed triple-A multiplatform release.

Speaking of his new team member Paul Wedgwood, owner of Splash Damage and studio director, said: “His stunning track record makes him ideal to drive our vision for such a truly ambitious new multiplatform project. I am constantly flabbergasted by his incredible design wit and intellect.”

Richard Ham, who has been in the industry for 15 years, added: “I’m really excited to be at Splash Damage. Their pedigree in shooters is absolutely fantastic and when I met the team and saw what they were working on, I knew I had to be part of it.”
