This new studio is supported by a "small team of contractors" which include two BAFTA winning animators. They seem to be after the digital market.
They've formed a "new micro studio based in North West England. The studio consists of Peter Collier (Senior Level Designer on Blood Stone/The Club), and Stephen Cakebread (creator of Geometry Wars), and myself," announced Ben Ward.
"Hogrocket will create high-quality games across multiple platforms, initially targeting iPhone/iPad, PC, and Mac. Our first game is underway, although we have yet to announce it. Watch this space!" Their website and twitter account is up.
We wish Hogrocket Games the very best and hope you do to.
