Curve Digital has announced that they have acquired IronOak Games, which is the independent game developer behind For The King.
Gordon Moran, Head of Studio at IronOak Games, said: “Curve’s support has been instrumental in the success of For The King and we’re beyond excited to formalize our relationship and embark on some new and exciting projects together.”
Jason Perkins, Managing Director at Curve Digital, added: “Our goal, since 2013, has been to become the main choice in publishing for independent studios worldwide and as we evolve, so do our relationships with development partners. With IronOak, based on our aligned values and goals, it made sense for them to join the Curve family and as a fast growing, ambitious publisher we’re looking at more acquisitions and encouraging developers that might want to work with us to reach out.”
For The King is an RPG that blends strategy, JRPG combat, and roguelike elements together along with procedural maps, quests, and events. Players will have to find and gather herbs to heal wounds and cure maladies as they fight, sail the seas, and explore the dark underworld. The title is on sale for the next few hours at 60% off on Steam, so be sure to check it out here.
