It isn't the first time we've seen this. With new tools becoming available for game development on the market, teenage development is rising.

A few projects by teenagers have become very successful : Harry Moran, 12, made PizzaBot which became the No.1 app on the Mac App Store; Robert Nay, 14, created Bubble Ball, which became No.1 app on the App Store, beating Angry Birds.

Now, another group of teenage developers hopes to walk in their tracks. ShiftJoy has been recently formed (although its' members have '2 years' experience' of Unity, their chosen engine), and they are now working on their first major release, Predator Realm.

They aim to combine 'action-packed zombie shooter' gameplay with a 'more casual, arcade style' to create an online multiplayer, fun, easy-to-learn game. According to their kickstarter, the game is estimated to be released some time around January 2014.

Last night, they released a kickstarter campaign to attempt to raise enough funds to complete the game and publish it.
