Hyboreal Games Formed
7:49 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Yet another new game company has arisen from the creative minds of former Blizzard employees. Hyboreal Games was recently founded by several veterans of the Diablo 1 and 2 team. Gamecloud had the chance to interview Hyboreal's co-founder Eric Sexton about the new company and its first title Starfall.

Gamecloud - Other than the title of your first game, Starfall and some sci-fi looking artwork, the company has revealed little about your first game. Can you give us any more hints about what Starfall will be about?

Eric Sexton - Starfall is a 3D, Science-Fiction, Action RPG. It's Halo meets Diablo with all the fast visceral game play of third person shooter merged with the character advancement and item collection of a role playing game. You can explore the planets of the Starfall galaxy, customize your space ship and choose the path of your character while deciding the fate of the galaxy.

Although Starfall is still in the conceptual stages Sexton's comments may offer hope to Mac gamers curious about the possibility of a version compatible with their favorite platform.
Gamecloud - What platforms will your first game show up on?

Eric Sexton - We are a PC game developer, but we will be negotiating with publishers and 3rd party developers to carry our game to other platforms.

Gamecloud - What are the company founder's current opinions on the state of the video/PC game industry? Is it healthy or are there problems that need to be addressed?

Eric Sexton - The game industry has been focused on Next Generation Consoles to the detriment of the PC games. We will be focusing on the rich and largely untapped PC market.
