Tony Goodman, one of the co-creators of Ensemble Studios’ Age Of Empires, has launched a new mobile start up called PeopleFun, telling VentureBeat his firm plans to create “character driven games,” and start small. “We were so successful with our first idea that we never got around to some of our other ideas. We’d like to create character-driven games, like the Nintendo games that we grew up with,” he said. The Texas-based studio includes John Boog-Scoot and Angelo Laudon, also ex-Ensemble Studios staffers. The team will focus on titles for iOS and Android.
