Three ex-Bizarre staff move on to form Hogrocket

The aftermath of the unfortunate Bizarre Creations incident has lead to three ex-members forming a new studio.

Stephen Cakebread, Peter Collier and Ben Ward have set up Hogrocket, an awesomely-named developer focusing on iOS, PC and Mac titles. The three-man team is to remain in Liverpool in the UK, like Bizarre before it, and will be supported by a small team of contractors.

Each of the three members brings something different to the team; you may remember Cakebread as the creator of the super-popular Geometry Wars while Collier acted as senior level designer for the ill-fated 007: Blood Stone and The Club. Ward previously worked as community manager and a producer at Bizarre.
