Out of the ashes of the now defunct Bizarre Creations rises the North West England-based studio Hogrocket.

The tiny studio consists of three former Bizarre Creations folks: Peter Collier, Ben Ward, and Stephen Cakebread. While they're all talented in their own rights, focus here on Cakebread: he created Geometry Wars. (Also, his last name is a combination of two things that are awesome.)

The studio says it will be focusing on creating "high-quality games across multiple platforms, initially targeting iPhone/iPad, PC, and Mac." It's first game is already into production, and while it's not ready to reveal specifics just yet, did I mention that Cakebread created Geometry Wars?
