Wow, it’s been so long since last time we spoke, I don’t know where to begin!
We’ve been hard at work, releasing patch after patch on a weekly basis, to keep you all entertained. But now, something happened: with the attention and love all of you guys gave via all the Reddit threads, YouTube videos, tweets, posts… we started to get a few offers, and decided to accept one. Now, it’s incredibly important that you understand that we’re still indie at heart, and one of the partnership conditions is that we maintain creative control.
This is not going to be like other titles that get sucked up in big publisher deals and lose sight of the soul of the game. All we want is to be able to have the stability and resources to make Rise of Industry the best game possible, without worrying about rent or marketing. Kasedo Games allows to us to do just that.
You might recognise their name from other games like Project Highrise and The Metronomicon, but most importantly from all the other Kalypso Media (mother company) has produced: Tropico and Dungeons.
What does this mean for you? Well, I only see good news: stable and constant flow of updates, Steam coming sooner than expected (January/February instead of next Summer), and thanks to the new resources, much more content than planned! Not to mention they already helped us put the game on Steam, so hurry up and wishlist it!
This is an unbelievable step for us at DPS, and we couldn’t have done it without your love and feedback, which is the only thing that kept us going for the last couple years.
