Second Dinner, the new independent video game studio founded by former "Hearthstone" developers Ben Brode and Hamilton Chu, is working on a new project with Marvel, it announced on Thursday.

"In all likelihood, this will be the best game ever made", CEO Hamilton Chu said. Members of the studio had previously worked on the ludicrously successful Hearthstone, a PC/Mobile trading-card game set within the World of Warcraft universe, and it's easy to see how a similar premise could work wonders for Marvel.

As revealed via a new video and blog post on Second Dinner's website, Brode and the rest of the team announced that they're now creating a project associated with Marvel. However, the developer notes that there's "a huge opportunity to make deep, satisfying games that are optimized for mobile".

"Second Dinner was created about eight months ago, though CCO Ben Brode noted in an announcement video, "[We've been] working on, I think, a sick Marvel game for about six months.

"The Second Dinner team has a strong track record of delivering quality games".

No specific Marvel properties were announced, though Joy Ong of Marvel Games noted "The team they've assembled at Second Dinner have made some of the greatest games in history. Or maybe Spectacular! Or Incredible.or Mighty...or quite possibly all of the above!" Second Dinner is still expanding, but it already has a prototype and playtesting going on for whatever the game will be.

For those of you who don't know your Spider-Man from your Spiderman, I'll point out that Ong's string of adjectives drops heavy hints that Second Dinner's Marvel game will include Aquaman, Swamp Thing, Krypto, and Midnighter.

Second Dinner is now looking for a client engineer and technical artist, and it's "really excited" to get some new perspectives on its game, Brode said.
