Jellygrade, a new indie studio dedicated to creating simulation experiences on mobile platforms, has been formally announced today. Jellygrade is made up of former EA Maxis creative director Ocean Quigley, former engineering lead Andrew Willmott and former lead gameplay engineer Dan Moskowitz.

In a tweet, Quigley says this first mystery project is about the dawn of life. "We're making a simulation about the dawn of life on earth; about lava, water, rock and the emergence of the first primordial creatures." Nothing else about this first project is known, though Jellygrade promises it'll have something to show soon.
