Shadows of the Damned director Massimo Guarini has announced he’s working on a movie-length, “emotionally challenging,” game with his new independent studio Ovosonico. While the title is still in the very early stages, Guarini said he wants to craft a memorable experience in a movie length time frame that explored more than “throw-away iPhone games and 40-hour long traditional productions.” Further details were not announced. Thanks, Gamespot.

“Of course we always wish to have a big hit, but at the same time – not just in Japan, but worldwide – I think it’s really difficult to be successful with a new IP. You really need an extraordinary amount of support to have a new franchise be successful. Unfortunately we couldn’t really do as well as we hoped for.” – Grasshopper’s Goichi Suda, speaking to Eurogamer at TGS on the difficulties of making a new IP. Grasshopper released Shadows of the Damned, via EA Partners, this past summer to critical success, but very low sales.

The director on Shadows of the Damned, Massimo Guarini, has left developer Grasshopper Manufacture. Guarini has seemingly set up a brand new studio called Ovosonico Productions, which will be based on “Games, Music, Films with an attitude,” according to a slogan for a placeholder website for the studio. Shadows of the Damned was released last month by EA Partners, but didn’t resound too well in sales.

Grasshopper Manufacture will release the game on June 21 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
