North Carolina-based BitMonster Games - the team of ex-Epic staffers behind App Store Best of 2012 star Lili - has posted a screenshot of its new (and decidedly less cuddly-looking than Lili) iOS game.

Judging by the image, which was posted on the company's Twitter account, we think BitMonster's new title is a shooter, possibly featuring zombies, definitely featuring large-calibre weaponry.

And going by the high-tech HUD in the pic, the elevated firing position, and the poor posture of the white targets, we reckon the game will involve either defending the city from an undead invasion with camera-mounted sentry guns, or firing off mighty cannons from inside a mech or power suit.

One thing's for sure, though: this screenshot's grim tone is a far cry from the bright and colourful world of BitMonster's aforementioned puzzle-adventure Lili.

Is this screenshot a sign that the ex-Epic boys are returning to their gory, Gears of War-style roots? You'll know more when we do.
