Flying Hamster 2 ditches Kickstarter for a publisher.
Today FDG Entertainment and Game Atelier have announced that they have partnered up in order to make Flying Hamster II a reality, thus eliminating the need for their Kickstarter campaign for the title.]
Said a Game Atelier spokesman, “At Game Atelier we are all really thrilled that we can go on production earlier than we could ever expect, thanks to the help of FDG Entertainment, and without changing anything from what we initially planned to make. We even think that being published by FDG Entertainment will drastically raise the overall quality of the game as we are now able to focus on its development and get their experienced feedback and support.”
They go on to state that if you were a backer of the Kickstarter campaign you can still get the game for free as a show of thanks by the company. They do, however, ask that you make a simple Tweet or Facebook post mentioning the partnership.
FDG’s co-founder, Thomas Kern, stated, “FDG Entertainment is an indie game publishing company with a focus of high quality, fun to play games. We’ve been following Game Atelier’s impressive quality productions since the release of Flying Hamster and loved their talent and passion which made their games clearly stand out from the crowd. We’ve been excited about the Kickstarter Project of Flying Hamster II. Being gamers from heart since the early days, we couldn’t do anything but fall in love with the game. We are convinced that this kind of game is what people are still looking for these days, so we jumped in to make sure this game is going to happen and fill us all with joy. We are excited to cooperate with Game Atelier in order to make the game become a reality and warp us back into the days of exciting 2D action adventures with the sensation of exploration and wonder.”
