New studio to develop "nonviolent" first-person exploration game

Several developers who worked on BioShock and other 2K titles have announced the formation of a new studio, The Fullbright Company. The new endeavor has already announced its first title, a first-person perspective "nonviolent game in an unfantastical locale."

Started up by designer Steve Gaynor and two others from 2K Marin and Irrational Games, the team has experience working on Mineva's Den, a downloadable campaign addition for BioShock 2.

"In our time apart after that project, we missed it," says the new company in a statement. "We missed working on a small team, on a small project, focused on telling a personal story in a player-driven way. We wanted to do that again."

"So we bailed out of corporate game development and reformed as an indie team, to see what we can do on our own."

The new game is slated for a PC release sometime in the future.

Nice, so it'll be a cross between a Penumbra game (without the death traps), Dear Esther (without the spooky moments and more interactive) and that Neverending Story first person adventure from a long time ago (without the fantasy setting). That's pretty cool, I think...

I cant say I expect much from this, but I respect them for trying and hope they succeed. Hopefully they can make a great game, like bioshock, without so much violence. I did enjoy games like Fragile dreams and Trace memory.
