"The first game we are making is in fact Pitfall, which is 30 years old this year," Brown told MCV.

"We've been working on Pitfall since earlier in the year when we set up and it has been really good to revisit that and bring it to a modern audience."

Brown and the studio, which benefits from the talents of ex-Rockstar bosses Mark Washbrook and Mark Lloyd, will also be working on other Activision properties in the future.

"Being able to call upon a wide portfolio of properties is really good for us and we are looking forward to finally showing it to more people," said Brown.

Many hours lost playing that on my Commodore 64, memories. I would love to see ports of some classic games to the tablet market. Jet Set Willy anyone?

I believe that mobile platforms are great way to bring best parts of C64 and Amiga gaming to new audience (and old one too). Our first game Tiny Troopers was inspired by Amiga classic Cannon Fodder. We set out to do modernized version of it, something we would want to play ourselves. There's so many great classics!

I hope Pitfall turns out great.
