Jon Chey quits Irrational

Jon Chey, co-founder of Bioshock developer Irrational Games, has quit the studio and struck out on his own, Gamasutra reports. His new venture, Blue Manchu Games, will focus on “niche” games, and his first project is Card Hunter, a Flash-based game supported by microtransactions. “There are just so many other platforms,” he explained of his return to PC development. “It’s opening up space for genres and niches that might have been moribund.”
