Halo mastermind takes his sci-fi shooter chops to mobile gaming with Industrial Toys
Posted by max at June 10th, 2012
Alex Seropian, Bungie co-founder and creator of the Halo franchise, has a new studio focused on creating mobile, hardcore games, and his first title is going to be — wait for it — a sci-fi shooter.
As a hardcore game, Industrial Toys‘ sci-fi shooter utilizes Unreal Engine and will exist in a world similar in size to the Elder Scrolls or World of Warcraft universes, Seropian said. As a web-based title, it may have some similarities to Team Fortress 2, president Tim Harris suggested after we asked about any online multiplayer capabilities:
“It’s interesting you bring up TF2,” Harris said, laughing.
That’s where the familiarity from Industrial Toys ends: Seropian and Harris, the latter formerly of Seven Lights, are looking to innovate the touchscreen-control space in a major way, while adding community features integrated on a level other mobile games can’t, well, touch.
