Bungie co-founder Alexander Seropian, who left Bungie after Halo 1 to found Wideload Games back in Chicago, has found himself a new gig: he's teaming up with another Bungie alum, Brent Pease of Oni fame, and Tim Harris, co-founder of Industrial Toys. They're making a mobile shooter called Morning Star, as well as an interactive comic as a companion piece called Morning Star Alpha.
The sample art for Morning Star Alpha, visible at the top of the Industrial Toys page, features a girl in a glowing purple outfit and wearing a Nintendo power glove, and a space marine in green armor.

Well... I get the feeling something like this has happened before.......
Wideload Games, developers of Hail to the Chimp and Stubbs the Zombie, is developing a new game: Texas Cheat'Em for Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network, due out this spring. Later it will come to PC. No details yet on the Wideload site, or an indication of whether this is either "Hot Sauce" or the "Rainbow Space Car", still listed as "coming soon" on the site.
UPDATE: According to GameSpot, this is actually a production of the Wideload Shorts division, which previously produced Cyclomite.
GameCock, famed interrupter of awards ceremonies, holder of funerals for tradeshows, and publishers of games by Wideload such as Hail to the Chimp, have been acquired by SouthPeak.
SouthPeak published last year's Two Worlds RPG on the PC and 360, a game that was widely criticized for failing to live up to the high standards set by Bethesda's similar game, Oblivion.
