Former Zynga Austin vice president and general manager Andrew Busey is teaming up with mobile developer Chaotic Moon Studios to form Team Chaos.
The new mobile development studio is releasing its first title, a free-to-play cars collecting game called Elements: Broken Lands for iOS. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Busey states the creation of the title is influenced by the growth in popularity of collectible card games.
"The rise of CCGs on mobile has been incredible," said Busey. "One of our objectives in crafting Elements has been evolving the ease of use and raising the quality level of this genre on mobile. Our past experience building these types of games combined with the amazing advancement in mobile technology has allowed us to build a visually stunning game that is both accessible and deeply strategic."
"I had not planned to do another start-up, but conversations with Chaotic Moon and the pace of mobile gaming advancement got me super excited." says Busey, "This is about passion. We are truly making games that we want to play. And we believe our passion and enthusiasm will result in games that other gamers are going to love playing, too."
Elements features an in-game marketplace in which players can buy and sell cars. The game is currently available on the App Store.
