You may have heard mention of this before, but here’s the official announcement: we’ve teamed up with Russian publisher Aggro Games to publish City of Steam for Russian, CIS and Polish regions! We’re betting this will come as good news for a number of you, since outside of English-speaking countries, our next largest fanbase was from Russia.
Here’s what Mike Sviblov, Chief Producer at Aggro Games, had to say:
"Working with Mechanist Games is an exciting opportunity. We are thrilled to work on a title with a unique and rich world, especially when you have such a great game behind it. Aggro Games feels players' demands for City of Steam, and we are working hard to deliver the best gaming experience to players in Russia, CIS and Poland.”
CoS will also be Aggro Games’ first trek into delivering a Unity 3D title, but we’re all expecting positive reception. As you may remember from last week, City of Steam has already captured the attention of several Russian-speaking gaming communities, as shown by recently winning the Perpetuum Mob “Most Anticipated Online Project”, a game media award for the best online games.
Dave also chipped in a word of his own:
“Choosing a publisher comes down to finding common ground, people that share our vision of what City of Steam could mean for the future of browser games. We have a growing fanbase in Russia already, and Aggro Games was a perfect fit, coupled with a solid approach to delivering quality online games to the Russian, CIS and Polish regions.”
So, things are looking up! And yes, for those of you who would like to “investigate” our new partner, feel free to read below for more information on them. We won’t judge!
