Former Eden Games staff form new studio

Ten former staff of the Test Drive Unlimited 2 developer have formed a new studio, Blossom Minds. Focusing on “original and quality content for the digital distribution market,” the Lyon-based studio hopes to announce its first project soon with a view to releasing it in 2012. Remaining staff at Eden went on strike for a day after parent company Atari announced plans to make 51 of the studio’s 80 staff redundant.
