After offering early mobile-social video gaming network OpenFeint to GREE for $104 million 2 years earlier, long-lasting gamer Jason Citron is now setting his ambitions on bringing core gaming to tablets.

The iOS platform has actually played host to many casual and arcade titles. And then it moved upmarket into mid-core gaming over the last year and a half. But is the platform now all set for die-hard gamers?

Citron is betting yes.

A year after raising some initial seed capital for his most current start-up, he offered a preview of the business’s first upcoming game, Fates Forever, on-stage today at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco. In the video game, you play in teams of three versus other trios in a Medieval-themed environment.

‘We are doing a reinterpretation of the MOBA [multiplayer online battle field] genre for the iPad. It resembles League of Legends for tablets,’ Citron said.

He said that while tablet gaming is a fast-growing section of the market, it has not been huge enough to draw in gaming business like Activision Snowstorm in a major means.

So there’s this hole in the market that Citron believes he’s distinctively able to attend to.

‘The people who’ve cash do not think the money exists yet in tablet video gaming,’ Citron stated. ‘And the people who believe the market is there, don’t have the cash. I think I’ve the motivation and skill to do this.’

Citron has actually raised about $2.5 million from investors including Peter Relan’s brand-new incubator 9+, Accel Partners, IDG Ventures, General Driver Partners, Time Warner and other angels like Kai Huang and Gil Pnechina.

The game, which is going to come out whenever ‘it’s ready’ later on this year, was constructed by an eight-person group.
