WII After De Blob Comes Swords & Soldiers For WiiWare

The talented ex-students responsible for de Blob have founded a new devepment studio and announced their first WiiWare project: the strategy title Swords & Soldiers.

The developers of the original version of de Blob have announced their new game studio Ronimo Games and their first title: Swords & Soldiers. Ronimo Games is founded by seven developers in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Being an innovative and fun game, de Blob became popular on the internet and was eventually picked up by THQ. The publisher bought the IP and will soon release the new version of de Blob for Wii.

Fabian Akker, one of the co-founders states "de Blob was the eye opener for us, that we can make cool games and function as a good team. The game definitely gave us the opportunity to start our own company".

The team is now developing a new game for WiiWare: Swords & Soldiers. Swords & Soldiers is a sidescrolling real time strategy game, in which three distinct factions battle for the powers of the gods. The game will feature a single player campaign and a competitive splitscreen multiplayer mode as well as several other game modes. Three screenshots are included with this press release.

Swords & Soldiers will be the first competitive strategy game on Wii Ware and is scheduled for European, Australian and American release in Q4 2008.

Three screenshots of the game can be found on our gamepage for Swords & Soldiers.
