A handful of former employees from Helixe have launched a new Boston-based online game development studio, DoubleTap Games. Gamasutra has posted a news item about the company and DoubleTap also has a new website up and running.  According to their site:

DoubleTap Games creates unique, high quality entertainment software. Focusing on multiplayer and online multiplayer games, DoubleTap builds fresh and innovative games for popular gaming platforms.

Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the DoubleTap team carries extensive experience in crafting online games of varying scale, as well as movie and TV licensed based games such as WALL•E, Ratatouille, The Incredibles, Tak, Jimmy Neutron, Fairly Odd Parents, Scooby Doo, Star Wars, and many others, with an understanding of a licenser’s ever-changing properties.

DoubleTap Games is committed to redefining online multiplayer experiences available on the Nintendo platforms. DoubleTap is confident the online Nintendo market will continue to grow and transform, and strives to speak to its audience in an uncommon way, with uncompromising quality.
