The lights are on
Bungie co-founder Alex Seropian revealed plans to start a new mobile games studio called Industrial Toys.
The company said it will focus on creating "mobile games for core gamers." A message on the studio's Facebook page reads: "We're big fans of mobile gaming, but we think there aren't enough great mobile games for core gamers and we want to try and change that."
No titles in development have been announced.
Seropian previously worked on the Marathon and Halo series before leaving Bungie in 2002. He went on to form Wideload Games in 2004 that was later purchased by Disney. He left the company this year.
I hope the games are good.
I keep hearing this phrase "Mobile games for core gamers." I haven't found very many of them, aside from the ones that have been ported, and only some of them were worth my time and money. I certainly hope that they find a way to get it right.
If I'm playing a game on my phone, it's usually because I'm bored to death and my DS or something is out of reach. I can't imagine that they would sell a game to someone like me who doesn't care for that platform when I have other systems that do it so much better.
I really just don't care about mobile gaming. And I have yet to play a compelling mobile game.
Here's to hoping these mobile games will be as good as Halo.
I'd like to see the future of mobile gaming when it gets more serious. There could be some big revenue to be found here.
No interest. Zero. Nothing.
Feels like some potential has just been wasted.
This excites me!!
So, chances are, it'll end up being casual games, or more 'core' games, that just aren't good, like the Battlefield port.
Hopefully they are more fluid than those already attemted
