skull/feed Tarantula to develop platform games

Edinburgh, UK

Just when you thought it was dead the success of Abe's Oddworld is bringing the platform genre back with a bang. Now New Dawn developers Chris and Sandy Topham have broken away to form a separate company, Tarantula, that will "bring kick-ass platform gaming into the 21st century". Work is already underway on a project which they tantalizingly describe as full immersion 2D in a 3D environment. "3d games are coming up against their first natural barrier and we intend to be in position." says Chris. Publishing details have still to be finalised but watch out for the first wave in early spring next year.
