In Seoul for the Gstar 2007 international game expo, Gamasutra has learned that Kingdom Under Fire developer Blueside is working on three new projects: one project for Live Arcade, one for an unnamed handheld, and one large-scale project more along the lines of the company’s traditional work, which also includes the Q Entertainment-produced Ninety Nine Nights. While the developer has tended to work on Microsoft platforms in the past, the move to handhelds indicates an expansion of vision for Blueside. When asked about the Live Arcade and other platforms, CCO Henry Lee remarked “We’re on it. We’re working on new projects for (other) new platforms (as well). Small games for a small… portable platform,” he teased. “I can’t tell you which one!” One thing I can tell you,” embellished Dee Lee, head of Blueside division 2 and manager of production and business development, “is that we’re going multi-platform with Circle of Doom, so that users can play against each other on Games for Windows Live. So we’re trying to diversify our platforms. And we do also have plan to make tiny games. Live Arcade is one thing, and that handheld game…” Seong D. Kim, senior VP, had the last word on the subject, saying “At the moment we’re now working on three projects at the same time,” which includes a large, next-gen project. “The completion date is different, but we’re working now at the same time. Our target is at least one or two titles every year.”
