Ganymede Games Locates Operation-Upgrade Headquarters in Las Cruces, New Mexico
The company also plans to invest more than $1.3 million in building and infrastructure improvements to their headquarters in downtown Las Cruces.
“We believe we’ve found a hidden gem in the land of enchantment,” said CEO of Ganymede Games Jerry Prochazka. “Our team is excited to have found such a business-friendly and welcoming community in New Mexico. We feel welcomed and supported by the hard work and efforts from the State of New Mexico, the NM Partnership, the City of Las Cruces, and MVEDA. Creating career opportunities for local developers, artists, writers, and other creatives will infuse our team with smart and passionate local talent. I want to thank everyone who was involved with bringing Ganymede Games to Las Cruces, New Mexico.”
As an incentive New Mexico will invest up to $250,000 and the City of Las Cruces will invest up to $100,000 in Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) funds. The City of Las Cruces will act as the fiscal agent for the LEDA award. LEDA helps recruit new businesses to our state while helping those already here grow and thrive.
“I’m proud to see a new company take root in Las Cruces,” said Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. “Video game development is an exciting industry and this company will provide solid jobs for New Mexicans and positively impact our economy. I’m thrilled to see what Ganymede Games creates and I wish them the best of success.”
“The Ganymede Games team is bringing years of valuable industry experience, knowledge of video game development and a unique understanding of their market to New Mexico,” said Economic Development Secretary Alicia Keyes. “This project is significant because the company will contribute to Las Cruces’ Main Street district and the local community by providing high-paying jobs for local artists and engineers.”
“We’re thrilled to have the team from Ganymede Games joining us in New Mexico,” said NM Partnership President & CEO Tim Nitti. “It’s been a privilege to work with them from the start when they first contacted the New Mexico Partnership to begin exploring how we measured up against the other states they were considering. It was clear to us from day one that this is where they belong; fortunately, they reached the same conclusion. They bring truly innovative ideas, deep industry expertise and technical prowess, all combined with an eagerness to quickly become part of the community, and we look forward to seeing them succeed and grow here in New Mexico.”
