Geometry Wars creator forms Hogrocket

Targets iPhone/iPad, PC and Mac.

Yet another studio has risen from the ashes of Bizarre Creations.

Hogrocket is a new micro-studio based in the North West and founded by Peter Collier (senior level designer on Blood Stone/The Club), Stephen Cakebread (creator of Geometry Wars) and Ben Ward (Bizarre community manager).

Hogrocket will initially target iPhone/iPad, PC and Mac, Ward said in a release sent out this morning.

"Our first game is underway, although we have yet to announce it. Watch this space!"

Activision shut Bizarre Creations, the developer behind the likes of Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars and Blur, last month.

Hogrocket is the second studio formed by former Bizarre staff members in the month since closure. Lucid Games was formed by Pete Wallace, a former Bizarre senior manager.

Ex-Bizarre design manager Gareth Wilson joined Sheffield based Outrun Online Arcade developer Sumo Digital as its new chief games designer.
