Feb 5, 2019

  LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Video game startup Ganymede Games has announced it will open a new studio in Downtown Las Cruces and create 50 jobs over the next five years.

New Mexico Economic Development Secretary Alicia Keyes said last week the games studio will invest more than $1.3 million in building and infrastructure improvements to their headquarters in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The company's move to Las Cruces is supported by $250,000 in Local Economic Development Act funding from the state, and another $100,000 in LEDA money from the city of Las Cruces.

The company's founders, Lynn Stetson and Jerry Prochazka, previously worked together at Riot Games, the developer best known for the "League of Legends" multiplayer battle arena game for PC and Macintosh computers.
