Space Goat Productions has announced that Michael Murphey, CEO and founder of PlayGrim Games and iVerse Media, has joined the company as Lead Game Designer and Production Manager. Murphey is a well-respected industry veteran and entrepreneur in both the digital comic book and board game markets.
“Murphey is the real deal,” said CEO and Founder, Shon C. Bury. “It’s hard to find people as passionate about our goals here at Space Goat as I am. Michael is a breath of fresh air and a welcomed addition to our family.”
“I’m very excited to come aboard Space Goat,” said Murphey. “I’ve been a fan of both Evil Dead and Terminator for quite some time, so the chance to work with both properties in a board game setting was quite appealing to me. The future is bright for Space Goat and I’m looking forward to being a part of the team while continuing my CEO duties at iVerse Media and PlayGrim.”
Murphey will oversee the final production stages of both the Evil Dead 2 and The Terminator board games. Additionally, Murphey will be instrumental in future Space Goat Productions game launches, including The Howling, and other licensed and original properties.
