New Radar Group to Push Game-to-Film Adaptations; Jim Perkins, 3D Realms' Scott Miller Lead

By Nick Breckon, Mar 15, 2008 12:34pm PDT A new middleman production company lead by 3D Realms founder Scott Miller and industry veteran Jim Perkins has been announced by way of a now-removed website.

Radar Group referred to itself as an "original IP incubator," with the goal of managing original gaming projects that can be further developed into cross-media properties such as "films, TV shows, novels and toys."

"We design games from the ground up with an equal emphasis on storytelling and gameplay," reads a statement on the company's website.

"We build into our original, co-created IP the hooks to make for both a great game and a great film. You don't have to look far for proof that our new approach will work; sales charts every year greatly favor IP born within our industry."

Miller will serve as the company's chief creative officer, with Jim Perkins taking on the role of CEO. Following our initial report, the bulk of the website was taken offline.

Some of the first games the group will take on were listed, including original IP from 3D Realms and such as Prey 2 and Recoil Games' Earth No More. Two unannounced titles were also listed, in addition to a third person adventure game titled Incarnate.
