Pixar artists Sequoia Blankenship, Andrew Dayton, Jonathan Hoffman, Joshua Qualtieri, and Jason Topolski have formed their own game studio: Steel Wool Games.

With Pixar, the various artists worked on films such as as The Incredibles and Toy Story.

Their first game, titled Flyhunter, is scheduled for release this summer this year, and will be published by Ripstone.

“We have an internal phrase that we use to describe our style: ‘Grimsical.’” said Dayton, describing their art style. “It’s our fundamental principle as a company. We create worlds that are funny and whimsical but dipped in gritty tones.”
