Graeme Devine no longer walks the halls at Apple’s Cupertino, California-based campus. Devine, who joined Apple’s iPhone Game Technologies division in 2009 left the company on December 3.
Considered by many to be Apple’s top iPhone gaming guru, Devine is now returning to his roots in game development. He will concentrate specifically on developing games for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
Devine told Kotaku exclusively:
“Apple didn’t have an in-house game designer before me so I think it was pretty unique, game technologies touch everything from the graphics stack to touch latency to push notifications. No other app type covers so many technologies and having someone there to validate and help shape that was basically my day job. It was pretty kick ass.”
Prior to joining Apple, Devine co-founded Trilobyte which created the best selling games The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour.
