If you have an Nintendo DS and you haven't yet played the new Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure then get on it because the game is a lot of fun.  I don't own a DS but I've played the game on a friend's and they practically had to pry me away from the game after I refused to give it up.  Hatsworth's Lead Designer, Peter Ong as well as Lead Programmer, Ryan Pijai have left EA to form a new independent studio called Dreamrift.  I can't wait to see what they come up with next, and we won't have to wait long as they'll be showing their first project to publishers at GDC this week, so hopefully some news will follow soon.

Peter Ong has experience with several other high quality adventure titles including The Red Star and Vex, and Ryan Pijai has worked on several successful sports and open-world action games as well.  There's no doubt that Dreamrift's first project has great talent, so I definitely look forward to their first game.
