Australian game developer Krome Studios has launched a new website, simultaneously unveiling a new Ty the Tasmanian Tiger game currently in development.

Ty is back.

While the studio is choosing to stay silent on more details about the game, including what platforms it will be released on, it has confirmed that it will be announcing more information about the project and the studio's new direction next week.

Krome was once Australia's largest independent game developer, with more than 400 members of staff across its various locations.

The studio ran into financial trouble in 2010, undergoing a series of staff cuts across all of its Australian studios, and eventually shutting down its Adelaide branch completely. At the time, the studio blamed economic factors.

The studio's last two games, Blade Kitten and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, received mediocre reviews.

Stay tuned to GameSpot for more information on Krome next week.
