Ex-Naughty Dog developers John Hughes and Andrew Gilmour have announced
the first title
from their new studio, Steel Penny Games. Bruiser and Scratch in the Case of the Puzzling Paw
is said to "blend a challenging puzzle game with dramatic fantasy environments and appealing characters for an exceptionally satisfying experience." That's a similar description we'd give to critical darlings Zack & Wiki
and Sam & Max.
Here's hoping Bruiser
enjoys the latter's commercial success (and not, unfortunately, the former's dearth in sales).
In addition to WiiWare, Steel Penny Games is also reportedly certified for Xbox Live Arcade titles. Bruiser and Scratch
is reportedly scheduled for a mid-2008 release. Nintendo's WiiWare service
is rumored to have a March launch
