John Scalzi’s Video Game Project Morning Star is a First Person Shooter With a Twist

John Scalzi has just announced that he is developing a new first person shooter called Morning Star in conjunction with Industrial Toys, the game studio formed by Alex Seropian, who formerly ran Bungie. The big news on Morning Star, other than Scalzi’s contributions (how often are awesome SF novelists involved with video games?) is that the game will be multi-platform and be playable across a variety of tablets and mobile devices. From Scalzi’s blog:

“It’s designed specifically for mobile gaming on tablets, which means that everything — gameplay, controls, story — was put together incorporating both the physical layout of tablets and the gameplay dynamic of mobile gaming. It’s not a port from another video game medium, in other words: It’s at home in mobile.”
