I'm excited to learn that another ex-Blizzard Northerners have formed Hyboreal Games, a game developing studio, to create a sci-fi action/RPG, Starfall.

Starfall is still in its prototype phase, so it will be quite a while. But according to Eric Sexton (co-founder of Hyboreal), Starfall will have features like planet hopping and spaceship customizing. I was kinda hoping for a game like that and now it comes to life. It's too early to say something so positive about the game though. But I will keep a very close eye on this game.

About Hyboreal Games, it's nice to know that: "We will be focusing on the rich and largely untapped PC market", and "The focus for us is game play over technology." I wish them success on all of their games.
