Two former 2K Marin staffers have founded a new studio, Uppercut Games, and announced its first release – the action combat title Epoch.
Co-founders Ed Orman and Andrew James list Fallout: Tactics, Freedom Force, Tribes: Vengeance, Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and XCOM among their credits on the studio’s website.
Uppercut’s manifesto is to bring triple-A quality to mobile and downloadable gaming, and it’s first project, the Unreal-powered Epoch, due on iDevice in late 2011. There’s a teaser below.
The pair have at least two further games in the works, with Plunder and Terminus both receiving funding in the NSW Government’s Digital Media Initiative scheme.
