A team of six former senior Epic Games developers have formed BitMonster Games and revealed their first game, the Unreal Engine 3 powered Lili for iOS devices.
Lili is described as a quirky adventure RPG hybrid. On the mysterious island of Geos, Lili will meet a number of crazy folk, explore beautiful environments and even challenge an oppressive regime or two along her way.
The game will use an "amusing" non combat system for dealing with enemies.
"Epic has been extremely supportive of our new studio and in helping us build the game of our dreams," said Lee Perry, president of BitMonster. "We set out to create an adventure that is appropriate for nearly anyone. As a designer, it's exciting to see that the Unreal Engine 3 tools are better than ever, and they provide everything we need to achieve a gratifying and imaginative experience."
Lili is in its final stages of production and should be on the App Store in a few weeks.
