Asmodee Group announced yesterday from its Paris office that the company will be opening up its large collection of intellectual properties. It will offer its inventory of over 250 different titles and properties to developers interested in deep publishing partnerships.
Some of Asmodee's popular games include Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, and Keyforge. The company has also explored longer, more complex games such as Legend of the Five Rings, a tabletop RPG, and Twilight Imperium.
The news comes shortly after Fantasy Flight, a subsidiary, closed down their Fantasy Flight Interactive service. Their first and only title, the Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game, was released on Steam last December and earlier this year for the Nintendo Switch (eShop download), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A representative reached out to Games Industry last month to confirm that FFI would keep the servers running after the studio's closure.
Asmodee Group also has its own digital publishing arm, Asmodee Digital. This arm handles many of the video game adaptations, including a port of Gloomhaven. Asmodee Digital's COO, Nicolas Godement, commented on his excitement about new partnerships.
Asmodee has established a world-leading platform for developing and publishing authentic and compelling digital versions of the best board and card games. Now, while we can’t wait to disclose some of the exciting titles we have been working on, and to sign new ones, we also look forward to working with the experienced licensing team at Asmodee Entertainment to further expand the range of interactive games based on our sterling array of Asmodee properties.
In addition, Head of Asmodee Entertainment Andy Jones added his own remarks on the development.
This is a fantastic opportunity for developers, publishers and of course, Asmodee Entertainment to enter into many new licensing partnerships and further explore the wealth of Asmodee titles through interactive games across all platforms and genres.We encourage developers and publishers to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, and meet up with us at GDC in March.
The GDC mentioned by Jones refers to the Game Development Conference, taking place March 16-20 in San Francisco, California. Interested developers should contact the company via email@example.com or at the conference next month.
