A group of ex-vets from EA Pandemic has set up a new studio known as Downsized Games, which takes a very obvious pop at its former lords and masters with its first project.

The developer’s first game is called BulletTrain for iPhone and iPod Touch, which sees giant coprporations rule the universe, one of which so happens to be called “Elaborate Acquisitions”, run by an evil overseer called “JR”.

Elaborate Acquisitions has nothing to do with Electronic Arts, and “JR” definitely isn’t EA CEO John Riccitello.

No date has been given for BulletTrain as to when it’ll hit the App store.

Pandemic Studios closed near the end of last year.
