Ex-Naughty Dogs Form Steel Penny Games

Former Naughty Dog (creators of the “Crash Bandicoot series and the “Jak and Daxter” franchise) employees Jason Hughes and Andrew Gilmour have opened up a new game development studio titled “Steel Penny Games”, which will focus on developing downloadable Nintendo Wii titles for the upcoming WiiWare channel. According to the press release, the new studio designed a proprietary engine that’s geared toward the Wii capabilities, and in the process creating a new intellectual property that will span a series of new titles for the console.

I am impressed with the egalitarian approach Nintendo has taken toward WiiWare developers. It allows the risk burden to shift back onto the creative developers,” explained Steel Penny Games president Jason Hughes.

The new title will blend fantasy themes with various puzzle elements. No word yet on when we can expect to play this title. WiiWare content is expected to launch within the next few months.
