Spec Ops: The Line Director Cory Davis and guitarist Robin Finck of Nine Inch Nails and Guns N' Roses have formed game dev studio Eyes Out to work on new cosmic horror game.
Eyes Out will be based in Los Angeles and according to the official announcement, it's forged from a fusion of visionary exploration and musical collaboration to build dark, atmospheric games with an emphasis on environmental storytelling.
The team is currently working on their first project, which is cosmic horror game. Not a lot has been said about the title in the press release but more info will be revealed in the months to come.
Cory Davis, who previously Directed and designed the critically acclaimed Spec Ops: The Line and worked on F.E.A.R and Condemned franchises said he and Robin Finck felt a very strong connection and instantly started working on prototypes.
"When I was finishing up work on Here They Lie, Robin wandered into our studio and I felt a very strong connection to his open, creative view of existence, and the power of music," said Davis. "We instantly started working on some prototypes I had in development at the time and together we launched straight toward something unexpected. Robin's vibrant and boundless approach to the creative process drives our work far beyond my previous experience. It's such an exhilarating trip to venture into the darkness together."
Nine Inch Nail guitar player also seems delighted to enter the video games industry.
"Cory is a true and impassioned artist. He’s a visionary leader who draws the highest and best from each person on the team, no matter their position. He’s capable and dedicated and he’s open to forces unspeakable. He’s rare. Weird, even. We connected about films and games and music and all the minutia and it was a really positive charge colliding with him. We have a simpatico work ethic and drive, and we see each other soul to soul. Our play together is inspired," said Finck.
