Disney have been busy dismembering the team and we have previously reported that Nick Baynes and Ian Monaghan have gone on to form Roundcube Entertainment – now another group of ex-Black Rock staffers have formed a spherical themed development team.
Game director Andrew Hubbard, technical director Kim Burrows, technical art director Stuart Pharoah and creative and art director Steve Uphill have got together to form ShortRound Games, complete with annoying but trendy capital letter ‘R’.
ShortRound (the development tea, not Indiana Jones sidekick) are keen to work on portable platforms. Andrew Hubbard spoke to GamesIndustry.Biz,
We’re in talks with various publishers but not ruling out being self published and are keen to release on iPad or even Sony’s Vita.
One thing that we know is that we want to make games that really suit the platform, there’s too many iOS games that don’t feel natural on a touch screen and leave you yearning for a joypad.
ShortRound have two projects in the pipeline and plan to release some video footage in a few weeks.
