Studio Director

Matt RaithelBorn alongside an Atari, I went to grade school with the Nintendo. I played on the monkey bars with the Sega Genesis, and I learned to drive with the Nintendo 64 riding shotgun. I went to college at Missouri State University with the PS2, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Arts.  When I joined the founders of video game developer Black Lantern Studios, I fulfilled my dreams of developing games on the video game consoles that would follow.

I’m not a nerd, really, I just like wearing flip-flops to work, earning a living by making games, and having office magic tournaments on the regular. I’m happy that some of our licensed titles have sold nearly a million units, however I am looking forward to meeting our full potential by shipping an original title that reaches the same heights.
