Curt Schilling's new firm
Schilling may be most famous as a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but his inner nerd seems to be shining through. Aside from playing Everquest II and owning a paper-gaming company (Multi-Man Publishing), he's just decided to found a videogame outfit called Green Monster Games. This might be incidental news except for who he's managed to recruit: the lead artist will be Todd "Spawn" McFarlane, and the creative director will be R.A. Salvatore, the writer popular for his novels set in the Forgotten Realms universe. It's further suggested that Monster may be using the GameBryo engine, which can be seen in Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Not a bad way to launch a business.
