Alex Seropian and new studio Industrial Toys take the lid off Morning Star, due for iOS devices in spring 2013.
Bungie founder Alex Seropian has big plans for his first game with new studio Industrial Toys. The company today announced its first game, Morning Star, a sci-fi shooter for iOS devices that aims to "raise the bar for mobile graphics" when it arrives during spring 2013.
"With Morning Star, we're looking to change expectations for what kind of experience core gamers get from their mobile devices," Seropian said in a statement.
Morning Star was built from the ground up for touch-based controls and is billed as a "complete reimagining of the shooter."
It is set 120 years into the future (around 2132) and brings players aboard the MSRV-Joplin, a research vessel equipped with heavy weaponry. Players seek out a mysterious signal, and as is often the case, disaster takes hold and gamers are thrust into the middle of an intergalactic war.
Morning Star runs on the Unreal Engine. For more on the game, check out its first screenshots below.
