Former Hearthstone developers working on new Marvel game

Second Dinner, a startup game studio built by ex-Hearthstone developers including game director Ben Brode, announced today that its first project is a collaboration with the home of Captain America, Spider-Man, and like 50 other Spider-Men.

Second Dinner is now looking for a client engineer and technical artist, and it's "really excited" to get some new perspectives on its game, Brode said.

Second Dinner isn't providing details right now on what it's working on, but Jay Ong, executive vice president and head of Marvel Games, said he's worked with Brode and Hamilton for years and they are "exactly who we want making Marvel games".

Ben Brode, the previous director of the smash-hit card game Hearthstone, announced a year ago that he was departing from Blizzard along with a handful of other developers at the company.

Border agents fired tear gas into Mexico on New Year's Day
This most recent skirmish occur received much less coverage than the previous time that border skirmish that involved tear gas. The agency said it couldn't assist children attempting to cross the border because of the rocks being thrown at its officers.

Speaking about the project in the video, Brode said: '[We've been] working on, I think, a sick Marvel game for about six months. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible! You can check out their announcement video below, then share any theories you have about the game in the comment section! "Or Mighty! Or quite possibly all of the above!" Considering the team's previous experience working on the collectible online card game Hearthstone, and its current small size, it's possible the game could be mobile or PC-centric.

The best news is, of course, that Brode and Chu will finally move Second Dinner into real offices and out of Brode's garage where the company has been housed since formation. "I think it's super fun". Second Dinner is still expanding, but it already has a prototype and playtesting going on for whatever the game will be.

We have a new Marvel game to geek out over while we wait to hear anything about The Avengers Project.
