Xavier Woods, AKA Austin Creed, has announced that he’s looking to start making some mobile games.
He’s the host of channel UpUpDownDown and now is diving into the worlds with his own mobile game company. Woods has been talking about this for a while now and has been seeking out a strategy since he was small. He’s been savings some startup cash that he’s collecting from his Twitch streams to establish this new studio later on. He wants to do this and has been flirting with the go-ahead for quite a while now.
During an interview with DualShockers, he mentioned that he wants to start out with mobile games and eventually branch out to PC and consoles. He said that he’s only had positive vibes and friends when he’s been asking others about this, especially his fans online. He states:
“Right now there’s just a bunch of stuff creatively that I kind of want to get out of my head and put it into people’s hands,” and “I just hope that there is at least a few people who would want to play the same kind of stuff that I want to play.”
Woods wants to start out small and work his way up. He currently doesn’t have any idea of when this plan will actually solidify and he’s still doing research and asking his network who has roles in the videogame business and see how he can start this thing up. His current schedule is busy with the WWE hosting position, his channel, and his personal life. Woods wants to make it all work somehow and he’s wants to have a plan put together before next year:
“If you say you don’t have the time for something, it’s because you don’t want to do it. If you want to do something, you’ll figure out how to make time for it,”
“I’ll figure out where to find the time to get it done because it’s something that I think is going to be, one, good for my mental state, and two, something that I think will be really fun.”
“This is something I’ve been kicking around for a minute, I just need to start getting more of the pieces in place,” he states at GDC.
Writer and journalist for almost a year. Doing this for fun. Learned a lot along the way. I’m interested in businesses and the moves they make, tech and how it changes the world, and of course, enjoy playing some video games! I enjoy console and PC, but mostly RPGs, FPS, and League of Legends.
