While I personally am not a fan of the Halo series (BLASPHEMY!!), it’s undeniable that the Halo universe has heavily-influenced the current generation of gamers and single-handedly sold hundreds of MILLIONS of Xbox’s and Xbox 360’s. Well, three former Halo developers have founded a new studio called Moonshot Games. Quoted from the press release:
“stars need not be limited to multimillion-dollar projects supported by armies of ground crew. There is a place in history for that small, nimble craft, built smartly on a modest budget, and piloted by expert hands.”
Moonshot Games plans to focus its efforts on developing high-quality downloadable titles. I’m hoping to see titles akin to Braid, Shadow Complex, and the just-released Lucidity. Here’s hoping that they can put their great minds and development talents together and crank out great titles.
