Independent developer Pixelbionic has announced David Jaffe has joined the company’s advisory board as a creative advisor for its vehicular combat game Autoduel.

Jaffe is the latest addition to the team assembled by co-founders Maxx Kaufman, a founding member of InXile Entertainment, and Mike Arkin.

Autoduel is a PC online multiplayer game with car combat along the lines of Interstate ’76 and Twisted Metal. The game combines team-based car combat with RPG-influenced “persistence and progression gameplay.”

The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, where “warriors drive to survive in their tricked-out, heavily armed vehicles scavenged from the blistered landscape, armed with a deadly array of lethal weaponry.”

It contains team-based combat in open arenas, and players can choose between twenty unique, upgradeable cars divided into three warring factions: Ratters, Scavengers and Techies.

Autoduel will be taken to Kickstarter “shortly,” and additional core members of the development team are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
