In the video game industry, it’s not uncommon for development teams to work together to create something special. And today, two indie developers have revealed that they’re teaming up to make a game called Dungeon Stars.
“Riposte Games & Co, the developer behind smash hit Mini Guns and Dallas based Furnace Games, spearheaded by industry legends Allan Ditzig and Jim Montgomery, announced today that they have signed a partnership agreement under which Riposte Games will have the opportunity to publish the next two games developed by Furnace. This partnership enables both companies to take advantage of their respective expertise and establish high production value for their upcoming titles. The first game, called Dungeon Stars, is a hack & slash dungeon crawler, scheduled for release in 2018.
“We just upped the ante, dramatically”, said Johan Eile, CEO of Riposte Games. “With this deal we have added Editors 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 teams rapsheet spans 25 years and includes games like Mortal Kombat, Dark Age of Camelot, Stuntman, and Terminator.””
