Samuli Syvahuoko, the former co-founder of Remedy Entertainment -- the studio behind Max Payne
and the upcoming Alan Wake
-- has formed a new game company
by the name of Recoil Games
in Helsinki, Finland. With veterans from companies like Ubisoft, Guerilla Games, Electronic Arts and Codemasters, Recoil Games hopes to create hit games that will reach worldwide recognition, no small task. The company is currently working on an original IP inspired by classic disaster movies. The game uses a combination of in-house technology and 3rd party tools. The first Recoil Games project, still untitled at this point, should hit the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC sometime in the near future.
