The new studio is called Jellygrade, and is made up of former EA Maxis Creative Director, Ocean Quigly, former Engineering Lead, Andrew Willmott and former Lead Gameplay Engineer, Dan Moskowitz. Quigley announced through a tweet that their first mystery project is about the dawn of life, where he says: "We're making a simulation about the dawn of life on earth; about lava, water, rock and the emergence of the first primordial creatures."
