SimCity Creative Director Leaves EA to work on Game About ‘Dawn of Life on Earth’

By   /   Jul 17, 2013

SimCity’s creative director, Ocean Quigley, confirmed yesterday on Twitter that he has left Maxis and Electronic Arts to set up a new studio called Jellygrade with SimCity lead architect Andrew Willmott and lead gameplay engineer Dan Moskowitz.

“We were lead developers on SimCity, SimCity 4, Spore and The Sims2,” said Quigley. “We love making simulations. We’re making a simulation about the dawn of life on earth; about lava, water, rock and the emergence of the first primordial creatures.”

Concept images have already surfaced on Tumblr.

“We’re starting off on the iPad with a fundamentally new simulation engine. I can’t wait to start showing it off,” said Quigley. “We’re building the new simulation engine now.

We’ll be following Jellygrade and keep you updated on it and Quigley’s statements about why he left Maxis and EA as it develops.

Until then, what do you think about a game about the dawn of life on earth?
