Video: Bungie “Halo” vets start new game, Seattle studio

A new Seattle game studio started by veterans of “Halo” creator Bungie Studios is presenting its first game this week at the Pax East conference in Boston.

Moonshot Games has five employees, three in Seattle and two in Boston, according to co-founder Michel Bastien, a former Bungie producer and vice president at Web tracking service Fyreball.

Other Bungie vets who co-founded the company include Damian Isla and Rob Stokes.

At Pax, it’s showing “Fallen Frontier,” a Halo-esque scrolling shooter with a sci-fi theme and top-notch graphics. Angry Stormtroopers?

Moonshot hopes to release the game in the first half of 2012, perhaps on the Xbox Live Arcade, Steam and PlayStation Network. Bastien said the game doesn’t yet have a publisher.
