Shadows of the Damned director crafting movie-length title

Massimo Guarini's Ovosonico is working on something in-between mainstream titles and mobile games

In July of last year, Shadows of the Damned director Massimo Guarini left Grasshopper Manufacture to found Ovosonico. Guarini recently told GameSpot that the new studio is working on a movie-length game which is in a "very early prototype stage."

"All I can say is that I want to craft memorable experiences," he said. "There is so much more to be explored besides throw-away iPhone games and 40-hour-long traditional productions. I think the best way for us to achieve our vision is to provide a rich emotional experience packaged in a movie-length time frame, and possibly sold at a reasonable price."

The developer, based in Milan, Italy, is also planning to work on music and film productions.
