Four new independent game development studios have been set up with the help of Gears of War maker Epic.

The studios were founded by students at Train2Game courses who took part in the Epic Game Jam competition last year. They are Commando Kiwi, Derp Studios, Digital Mage and Indigo Jam.

The first games from the quartet are based on the Fighting Fantasy series of books created by Ian Livingston and Steve Jackson. They will release on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch this spring following a reveal at The Gadget Show Live.

The books chosen are The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, The Citadel of Chaos, Deathtrap Dungeon and Armies of Death.

The winner of the competition nets a full source commercial Unreal Engine 3 license for iOS.
