Chad Waller is a cynical writer and figures that that's probably an oxymoron.

After an unpaid 18 month stint with Crytek, what remained of the founding team left to form their own studio called Gunfire Games.

Now their own independent studio, Gunfire Games is looking for its next project, and according to an interview with Polygon, that could be a return to Darksiders. Continue reading Darksiders 3 is still a Possibility

That said, I wanted to give a small developer’s blog about my upcoming title which is currently being Kickstarted. Vitrerran is a real-time card game with bits and pieces of influence from the likes of Megaman, Super Smash Bros., Baten Kaitos, Final Fantasy, and Magic the Gathering while still being something very different.
