Undertow developer Chair Entertainment has signed the rights to create titles based on author Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game sci-fi series.

The developer is targeting all current home and handheld platforms as well as PC, with the first title due for digital release.

"I have been a huge fan of Ender's Game since I was ten years old, so it is a true honour for our team to be entrusted with creating the first video game inspired by this classic story," commented Donald Mustard, creative director of Chair Entertainment.

"Our goal is to create an authentic Enderâs Game experience that delivers awesome gameplay and can be enjoyed by both long-time fans and gamers new to the series."

Chair and Orson Scott Card have previously worked on the game Empire, with the author creating a novel to accompany the release of the game in 2006.

"From the moment I started working with Donald Mustard and his team at Chair, I knew that these were the guys I wanted to do the first Ender's Game videogame," said Orson Scott Card.

"It's not enough to slap the Ender's Game name on just any game — it has to be exciting, memorable, and endlessly replayable. Chair shares my understanding of this and I am looking forward to working with them to ensure the game is as authentically Enderish as possible."
