Team Chaos: former Zynga Austin VP forms new studio
Team Chaos is the new development studio founded by former Zynga Austin vice president and general manager Andrew Busey. Paired up with Chaotic Moon Studios, Busey and his colleagues have formed Team Chaos, and the studio has debuted with free-to-play iOS card game Elements: Broken Lands. It’s out now.
Speaking with GI.biz Busey said of the title, “The rise of collectible card games on mobile has been incredible. One of our objectives in crafting Elements has been evolving the ease of use and raising the quality level of this genre on mobile.
“Our past experience building these types of games combined with the amazing advancement in mobile technology has allowed us to build a visually stunning game that is both accessible and deeply strategic.”
After leaving Zynga Austin, getting into the indie scene wasn’t on Busey’s priority list, but the prospect proved attractive enough for him to take the plunge once more, “I had not planned to do another start-up, but conversations with Chaotic Moon and the pace of mobile gaming advancement got me super excited.
“This is about passion. We are truly making games that we want to play. And we believe our passion and enthusiasm will result in games that other gamers are going to love playing, too.”
