Burn the witch.
Former members of People Can Fly are banding together to assemble a murder mystery, free of tacked-on combat.
When your last three games are Painkiller, Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, surely another crazy gory murderfest will follow? Not for The Astronauts. The small studio set up last year by People Can Fly founder Adrian Chmielarz and two fellow veterans today announced its first game, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, a "weird fiction horror" game for PC meant "to be played at night, alone, and in headphones."
Three devs from Bulletstorm dev People Can Fly have branched out to form a new development house called The Astronauts. They have also licensed Unreal Engine 3 tech for their future games.
