Veteran Blizzard designer Stieg Hedlund, whose credits include work on both Diablo
and Diablo 2
, is setting out to found his own development company. Hedlund and Blizzard North Art Director Bob Steele are teaming up with six additional programmers and artists to create the Full-On Amusement Company. Though the team is already well into the production of their first Lith Tech 2 based game, Hedlund will wait to join in until after completing his Diablo 2
duties. "Full-On is a chance to start with a blank canvas," said Hedlund, "I'm going to show people something they've never seen before."
