Since former EA Los Angeles employees Jake Kazdal, Ben Vance and Borut Pfeife created Haunted Temple Studios, they've been working on Skulls of the Shogun
, "an invigorating cocktail of 1960's flavored sorcery and strategy". The game has won several "Best" and "Indie Game" awards from E3 and PAX. Haunted Temple Studios won't be winning anymore indie awards, however, as Skulls of the Shogun
is coming to XBLA.
In an interview with Gamasutra
, Studio Founder Jake Kazadal confirmed that Haunted Temple Studios was signed by Microsoft Studios and they will distribute the game over XBLA. Kazadal says that "Microsoft totally got our vision and have been fully behind it ever since, and the support we're getting out of them has been seriously as much as I could ever ask for. Our extended team is now more powerful than ever!"
Now, you might be wondering what Skulls of the Shogun
is. Never fear as there is plenty of gameplay available, each showing off one of the four seasons:
Skulls of the Shogun
is set to release later this year.
