The lights are on
Nexon has announced that it has made a "strategic investment" in Robotoki, the development studio founded by former Call of Duty creative strategist Robert Bowling.
"We are thrilled to partner with Robotoki to develop cutting-edge multiplatform, cross-genre games," said Seungwoo Choi, president and CEO of Nexon. "Robert Bowling`s creativity and talent is evidenced by his track record of success, and we look forward to collaborating with the entire Robotoki team to deliver inventive, multidimensional gaming experiences to consumers in North America and around the world."
Robotoki is currently working on Human Element, a game that takes place after a zombie infestation. The multiplatform game focuses on how humans interact with one another following a wide-scale calamity, pulling real-world GPS data and using augmented reality via phones and other mobile devices.

Now let's just get Human Element (aka The Last of Us for all consoles mixed with Mass Effect) out sometime. ;-)
Hope it pays off for 'em.
Urgh.. soon, more people will know the tragedy that is Nexon... how will humans interact after that... sounds like a real game right up Nexon's alley... *shudder*
