- Bionic Games is a new development studio based in North Hollywood actively recruiting team members to work on an unannounced action adventure game for the Wii. The game will be an original IP, and a few minor details can be gleaned from the company's job listings.
Bionic is looking for a Lead Animator to oversee, among other things, "high quality pre-rendered cinematics." The game is a third-person adventure.
Apparently, Bionic has picked up a former Obsidian employee named Mike Stout to serve as its Creative Director. Stout was Lead Level Designer at Obsidian, presumably working on the Alien RPG. Before that he was Senior Designer/Multiplayer Lead at Insomniac Games, maker of Resistance: Fall of Man.
Bionic has also nabbed a former Audio Lead at Blizzard named Bill Black, who worked on World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Black is serving as Bionic's Director of Audio and Video. He is responsible for in-game dialogue, so it sounds like this Wii title could be story-driven with a good amount of voice acting.
