What’s better than a game released by one critically acclaimed Indie Games Developer? A game co-developed by two acclaimed Indie Developers, of course. Riposte Games & Co, the developer behind smash hit Mini Guns and Dallas based Furnace Games have signed an agreement under which Riposte Games will publish the next two games developed by Furnace. Dungeon Stars, a hack & Slash dungeon crawler is one of those two and is due to be released for PC, mobile and consoles in 2018.
Take a look at the Dungeon Stars Trailer here…
Riposte Games & Co are the developers behind shop heroes and mini-guns. The latter has had over 1 million downloads within three weeks of its launch, and there’s a big update due in a few weeks, so this figure is very likely to get even higher.
Mathieu Rouleau, Chief Creative Officer at Riposte continues; “Montreal is a hotbed for talent but to compete on a global scale you have to work with the best. The Furnace team is composed of bona fide game development rock stars and luminaries.”
Both Riposte Games and Furnace Games are very excited about the collaboration…
“We just upped the ante, dramatically”, said Johan Eile, CEO of Riposte Games. “With this deal we have added Editor’s Choice quality talent to our power team. Dungeon Boss was a staple in the top grossing charts in 2016 and is still a very good game and to be able to collaborate with the talent behind something like that is obviously awesome. Besides creating Dungeon Boss and Castleville, the Furnace team’s rap sheet spans 25 years and includes games like Mortal Kombat, Dark Age of Camelot, Stuntman, and Terminator.”
“We have had the opportunity to collaborate with the Riposte team over the last couple of months and to tap into their cross platform expertise for our next games will be a major difference maker”, says Jim Montgomery, CTO and Co-founder at Furnace Games. “This type of partnership allows us to focus on the creative innovation and push the boundaries of the next generation experiences.”
