Andrew Busey-led developer releases collectible card game for iOS

The former general manager of Zynga Austin Andrew Busey has opened a new mobile studio focused on free-to-play titles.

As reported by Gamesindustry, Team Chaos’ first game will be free-to-play collectable card game Elements: Broken Lands, which has already been released on the App Store.

Busey has also teamed up with Chaotic Moon Studios to form the new studio.

"The rise of CCGs on mobile has been incredible," said Busey.

"One of our objectives in crafting Elements has been evolving the ease of use and raising the quality level of this genre on mobile. Our past experience building these types of games combined with the amazing advancement in mobile technology has allowed us to build a visually stunning game that is both accessible and deeply strategic.

"I had not planned to do another start-up, but conversations with Chaotic Moon and the pace of mobile gaming advancement got me super excited. This is about passion. We are truly making games that we want to play. And we believe our passion and enthusiasm will result in games that other gamers are going to love playing, too."
