Thatgamecompany devs form new studio

Two Thatgamecompany staffers have left the Journey and Flower developer to form indie studio The Wilderness.

Game designer Chris Bell and Feel Engineer John Nesky will now focus on finishing Way, a finalist at the Independent Games Festival which is currently available as a free alpha build.

Exploring similar themes to Journey, Way is a collaborative game in which two anonymous players must find ways to communicate through a LittleBigPlanet-esque pupperteering system in order to solve a series of puzzles.

The team also includes Walt Destler, who previously worked at Schell Games and Walt Disney Imagineering.
