Tim Harris, former CEO of Los Angeles-based developer Industrial Toys, has announced that he has started a new company, Gunslinger Studios, in order to launch new game, Exiles of Embermark.
It's a fast-paced RPG designed to be played with one hand, which aims to bring "synchronous multiplayer in under 60 seconds".
Players will engage in PvP combat, as well as single-player and co-operative modes, collecting and levelling up heroes in battle, and gathering loot.
There is also the promise of a "player-influenced story" that will be dictated by the victories and defeats of the players within their various Houses.
While Harris is shifting his focus to the new company - which is a sister company to Industrial Toys - he has said that he will remain involved with Industrial Toys, which is currently working on a follow-up to its 2014 release Midnight Star.
