Newsbrief: A group of former Bizarre Creations staffers who founded a mobile games studio last year has closed down as the founders move on to new opportunities.

Hogrocket was Pete Collier, Ben Ward and Geometry Wars series creator Stephen Cakebread. The studio shipped a single game, Tiny Invaders for iOS, before deciding to close shop this month. Collier has moved on to British studio Playdemic.

"Unfortunately Hogrocket is on indefinite hiatus and the three of us have all moved onto new things," Collier confirmed to GI.biz. "This was due to a combination of factors, ranging from geographical to financial. It's sad but the three of us all learned a lot."
