"I want this to be fresh, exciting and fun, and the longer you spend on anything the more you lose those three things," he explained.
He noted, "I am looking for a partner, for partners, and if the work we produce makes money - I do not expect it to make money but it is wise to be clear about this on the off-chance that it does - then that money will be divided between the participants."
UK-based Kuju division Zoe Mode is best known for its work on franchises such as Singstar
and Guitar Hero
. The company confirmed earlier this year that it is working on a sequel
