Wideload, the kooky cats behind Hail to the Chimp
, the satirical fighter set in the animal kingdom, has announced
the formation of its Shorts division. The Shorts division will focus (surprisingly
) on downloadable games for various console services and PC. As you might suspect, Wideload Shorts has plans to create games for Xbox Live Arcade
. Wideload is careful not to call such games "casual," as they wish to make it clear that while gameplay will be kept simple, it should still be compelling to longtime gamers as well as newcomers. While no specific titles have been named, the first Wideload Shorts game is expected to arrive in late 2007.
