Ian Baverstock and Jonathan Newth, the founders of UK console studio Kuju, and who then set up consultancy Tenshi Partners, are back at the sharp edge of the game business.
Announcing Chilled Mouse, the pair have promised to release games across multiple platforms as part of an ethos to bring “great games to players everywhere – or at least everywhere that has an internet connection.”
The company's debut - a PC game - will launch in December
Nose for smelly stuff
Explaining the decision to start over, Baverstock commented, “The opportunity to bring great games to all sorts of players is phenomenal at the moment.
"This is the second great age of indie gaming. We spent the first one playing games and building a developer; this time we’ll be playing games and building a community.”
The company bio promises to put all that experience to good effect by serving up fun for players whilst avoiding all the obvious traps.
"We know that’s a cheesy objective but at Chilled Mouse our strategy is to stay focused on the cheese.”
