Former Harmonix and Irrational devs announce Dreadline


11:00 AM on 05.14.2012



Eerie Canal Entertainment is an independent studio based out of Boston that's made up of people from companies you've heard of and probably like a good deal: Irrational Games, Harmonix, and Iron Lore.

They have just announced their debut game, Dreadline, and it's described as a Diablo/Freedom Force mashup in which you control a group of monsters who travel to "human calamities" (e.g., The Titanic and Pompeii) to finish off the poor folks since, hell, they're already screwed anyway.

The premise seems promising, as does the game's sense of humor. Throw in the aforementioned gameplay style and I think we've got something to look forward to in the first quarter of 2013.

Eerie Canal Entertainment is an independent game company recently formed in Boston, MA formed by Bryn Bennett and Steven Kimura. The two have collectively worked on such titles as System Shock 2, Bioshock, Titan Quest, Guitar Hero 2, Freedom Force 2, as well as the entire Rock Band collection.

Additional Sexy Team Info:

Bryn Bennett: Former Lead Programmer at Irrational Games, Iron Lore, and Harmonix.

Steven Kimura: Former Lead Artist at Irrational Games and Harmonix.

Arthur Inasi: Audio Lead/Senior Sound Designer at Harmonix.

Aaron DeMuth: Former artist at Harmonix. His house just burned down.

Mallika Sundaramurthy: Former artist at Harmonix.
