SimCity creative director Ocean Quigley, along with two other high-level members of the SimCity team, have left Maxis to form their own studio, Jellygrade.

Quigley announced the formation of the new studio on Twitter, mentioning that SimCity lead architect Andrew Willmott and lead gameplay engineer Dan Moskowitz were joining him.

“We were lead developers on SimCity, SimCity 4, Spore, and The Sims 2. We love making simulations,” Quigley posted on Twitter. “We’re making a simulation about the dawn of life on earth; about lava, water, rock, and the emergence of the first primordial creatures.”

“We’re starting off on the iPad with a fundamentally new simulation engine. I can’t wait to start showing it off,” he added. “We’re building the new simulation engine now.”

Some very lava-tastic concept art for the unnamed start-of-life simulator can be found on Jellygrade’s Tumblr page.
