San Francisco-based Shaba Games is no stranger to following in other developers' footsteps. The Activision subsidiary has spent the better part of the last decade working on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater ports and offshoots and made a splash last year with Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, GameSpot's highest-rated console Spidey game to date.
For its next project, Shaba could be working on yet another of Activision's well-established franchises. According to a job posting on Gamasutra, Shaba Games is working on a music game. The San Francisco-based developer, located a few miles from the nascent Activision Bay Area, is looking for a staffer "to create MIDI note data based on pre-recorded vocal tracks" and input song lyrics into the game.
The job listing doesn't specify which game Shaba is working on, but Activision has plenty of rhythm titles to choose from. This year alone, the publisher has released Guitar Hero: Metallica and Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, with Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, and Guitar Hero: Van Halen still to come, all of which include sing-along gameplay.Watch the video
