The lights are on
The development team behind Skulls of the Shogun is changing its name from Haunted Temple Studios to 17-BIT. The new name represents the studio's "commitment to preserving classic gameplay ideals, using modern technology to innovate upon and super-charge them for the modern age."
CEO Jake Kazdal said, "It's 16-bit, plus a bit more. When we test-drove the 17-BIT name and logo at PAX East, people instantly got it. It reached the point where people kept stopping us on the show floor and asking where they could get our t-shirts.
"The new name sums up our goal perfectly -- taking your best memories of the 16-bit era, and making new experiences that look as good and play as well as you remember."
Skulls of the Shogun is coming later this year to Microsoft Windows 8: Windows 8, Xbox Live Arcade, and Windows Phone.
I like that name much better!
Yay coming to wp7 and win 8!
