September 22, 2020 1 min read

A team of  formerLab Zero Games employees have come together to form a brand new, independently owned studio. Future Club has been born out of the ashes of the Lab Zero controversy, which saw a huge exodus of staff after multiple accusations of sexual harassment and toxic behavior against Lab Zero head Mike Zaimont.

Future Club is headed up by CEO/Producer Francesca Esquenazi, who will lead a team comprised of creative director Mariel "Kinuko" Cartwright, senior animator Jonathan Kim and game designer Earl Gertwagen. In all, Future Club's staff consists of 15 former Lab Zero employees, all of whom worked on 2012's excellent fighting title Skullgirls and 2019's aesthetically fantastic RPG, Indivisible.
