Over in Ringtail Studios‘ newest office, they have no shortage of talent or expertise! We featured an article about Gennadii Ishkulov, who is a member of the Georgia team in their newest office in Tbilisi, Georgia. A relatively new entrant into the games’ industry Gennadii joined Ringtail Studios a few months prior and began his work with gaming. His work is mainly focused on working with environmental art, lighting of locations, and optimization.
