Ex- Irrational Games, Harmonix, and Iron Lore developers have come together to form a brand new indie game studio called Eerie Canal Entertainment, and have announced their debut game, Dreadline.

The studio, which is based out of Boston, described its first game as being a mach up of Diablo and Freedom Force.

Dreadline will allow players to control a group of monsters who travel to “human calamities” (for example, The Titanic and Pompeii) in order to finish off ill-fated victims and relieve them off their misery.

Here’s the official blurb on what the studio’s all about:

“Eerie Canal Entertainment is an independent game company recently formed in Boston, MA formed by Bryn Bennett and Steven Kimura. The two have collectively worked on such titles as System Shock 2, Bioshock, Titan Quest, Guitar Hero 2, Freedom Force 2, as well as the entire Rock Band collection.”

An official website is also live, which you can bookmark to catch up with all the updates regarding their new game.
