Dene and Simon Carter, who, alongside Lionhead's Peter Molyneux, created the Fable franchise, have formed a new studio with some former colleagues. The studio is called Another Place Productions.

The Carters were the founders of Big Blue Box, which became one of the first Lionhead "satellite studios" and developed the original Fable. Simon had a long history with Molyneux, having worked with him in Molyneux's previous company Bullfrog Productions.

The pair had left Lionhead last year to pursue other opportunities. At the time, they said their new venture would focus on games for emerging platforms like Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and mobile.

They are joined at Another Place Productions by ex-Lionhead technical director Guilaume Portes and executive producer Jeremie Texier.
