Veteran game-makers Paul Murray and David Shelley this week announced the foundation of Tactical Simulations Interactive, a "new independent video games studio with old school RPG sensibilities." Their hope is to recreate the meaningful experiences of classic SSI games like Pool of Radiance and Curse of the Azure Bonds.
David Shelley, Producer/Lead Designer, TSI expands on the company's goals:
“Tactical Simulations Interactive is a return to providing the player full control of their party, with a focus on creating immersive and unforgettable story experiences, exciting exploration, meaningful social/political choices, and robust tactical combat.”
The company's got a few days before it's ready to make any particular announcements regarding new projects but to keep an eye on TSI's doings, visit their website once it comes online next week.
