PopCap vets form mobile games company Fixer Studios

Thursday, 27th February 2014 20:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

PopCap veterans Avery Alix, Eric Olson and Christopher Langmuir have formed a new mobile studio called Fixer Studios.

Sinister Dexter

The firm plans to employ “a constantly fluctuating workforce of veteran volunteers,” reports GI International.

The studio has 30 members at present and its formation was inspired by the “indie game-jam spirit,” so it will encourage developers to participate in all areas of development. The firm’s titles will be built using a “collaborative cloud” model.

Sinister Dexter is the firm’s first project, and is a wizard game with strategy elements. Players will need to defeat villains and challenge friends in duels using nothing but wits.

Players will also collect magical cards, and it was developed as a spiritual successor to the pen-and-paper game Spellbinder.

It is slated for release on Android and iOS this spring.

    That has put these guys on my watch list. There’s nothing I like seeing more than that. I mean, Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight has been a joy to watch, and it’s great to just let the creativity flow. That’s how you get games which are made by passionate people, rather than just by wage slaves cranking out the grey gruel just to meet their pay level.

    @1 pretty offensive to devs, its always down to bad management or publishers for the way devs work these days
