One of the BioWare doctors is back in the games business

After leaving the game industry in 2012 to pursue passion projects in the beer business, BioWare cofounder Dr. Greg Zeschuk is back -- in a sense -- with a leading role at mobile game company Biba.

After leaving the game industry in 2012 to pursue passion projects in the beer business, BioWare cofounder Dr. Greg Zeschuk is back -- in a sense -- with a leading role on the board of mobile game company Biba.

The Vancouver-based Biba is embarking on a partnership with playground equipment maker PlayPower to roll out augmented reality games that kids can play in real-world playgrounds.

As Chairman of the Board, it's unclear how much influence Dr. Zeschuk will exert on Biba's development efforts.

"Biba’s mobile games designed for outdoor play are just a breath of fresh air,”  stated Dr. Zeschuk in a press release. “PlayPower and Biba are creating a new category, an inventive way to blend our new media habits with the health benefits and joy of active outdoor play. I am inspired by the category as a game designer and father."

When Dr. Zeschuk and his fellow BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka left the industry, Dr. Zeschuk predicted that even if things didn't go well with his Beer Diaries side project, "I’ll have drunk a lot of tasty beers and may be back in games or even something else completely different." Biba seems to fit the bill.
