TDU2 developers form Blossom Minds

"We are done with triple-A titles."

Some of the people behind Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Alone in the Dark have formed a new developer.

Blossom Minds, founded by 10 ex-Eden Games staffers, aims to create "original and quality content for the digital distribution market".

Its first game is down for launch in 2012.

"Blossom Minds is built on strong gameplay values, graphical skills and in-house state of the art technology, making smaller games but with big production polish," the group said.

"We are done with AAA titles; let us bring the OOOOOOH! instead."

In May Eden Games went on strike against parent company Atari over plans to cut 51 jobs from its 80-strong team.

"Eden Games pays now for Atari mismanagement," Eden said in a statement.

"For several years we are witnessing multiple leader changes at its head, they did not hesitate to get rich despite financial difficulties.

"Atari does not play the game of negotiations with employee representatives on the redundancy plan measures. Employee representatives of Eden until now have been extremely collaborative, respecting the very tight deadlines of the redundancy plan."

Eurogamer's Test Drive Unlimited 2 review put its foot down on a 7/10.
