In a tweet published on Thursday, Evans said he wanted to take a break from game development and explore new opportunities.
“A few months ago I did a bit of lockdown-inspired soul searching and decided to step down from ‘dreams dev’ to ‘dreams fan’ – take a break from gamedev, a career I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy since I was a spotty 15 year old,” he wrote.
“MM is a wonderful place, I can’t imagine making games anywhere else; but I wondered what /else/ an old fart like me could do in this world? I’ve been in the gamedev bubble so long I’m not yet sure what’s next, or even out there, for someone like me.
“For anyone worrying about dreams – don’t! what MM are doing on dreams atm is gonna *blow your minds* & though I’ll miss them all, I’ll be cheering from the sidelines! thanks to them for the first 13 wonderful years & here’s to MM’s next 13!”
In a follow-up message, Media Molecule’s official Twitter account wished Evans well.
Evans started his commercial development career at Bullfrog, before moving to Lionhead as a programmer for the original Black & White, its sequel and The Movies.
The Guildford, UK-based developer was purchased by Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2010.
