Volition veterans ignite Blazing Lizard
Former THQ employees plan to bring experience earned on Saints Row, Red Faction to bear on downloadable games.
A trio of former developers at THQ's Volition, Inc. studio have unveiled their new start-up studio to the world. Sandeep Shekar, Jiovanie Velazquez, and Christopher Stockman today announced their new venture, the Savoy, Illinois-based Blazing Lizard.
Boasting more than three decades of cumulative experience between them, the trio worked on a number of hit Volition games, including Saints Row, The Punisher, Red Faction, Red Faction 2, and Descent: FreeSpace. According to the group's Web site, the studio's goal is "to create high-quality, compelling console-downloadable games for all platforms."
Blazing Lizard is set to unveil its first title, an original intellectual property, next week. In the meantime, the group has posted a handful of blurred screenshots to its Web site.
