Newsbrief: A group of former Irrational Games staffers and industry veterans have banded together to form a new video game studio focused around story-driven experiences.

Day for Night Games is Joe Fielder, former writer on BioShock Infinite; Robb Waters, artist on the BioShock series; Chad King, previously an environment artist on BioShock; and more, according to Polygon.

The team came together following the closure of Irrational earlier this year. The first game from the team is called The Black Glove, and is a first-person puzzle game centered around jumping through time to alter the lives of an artist and a filmmaker.

You can find more information from Day for Night's Twitter.

Levine, of course, never revealed who he was keeping and letting go from Irrational Games, but I'm honestly shocked that Robb Waters was let go.

Waters had been a key concept artist at Irrational for years and was most recently credited for the design of Songbird in Bioshock Infinite, among other things. I doubt it, but I hope Levine knows what he's doing. What a loss.

Fielder I remember from watching his reviews at Gamespot way back in the day, and he also penned Mind In Revolt for Infinite, if I'm not mistaken. This new studio will probably be one to watch.
