Leipzig, Germany (August 23, 2007) - Polish based developer Nibris, creators of the highly anticipated Wii title Sadness and many other AAA products, has signed industry leader FOG Studios as its exclusive representative for interactive development and intellectual property placements.
“We have closely watched how FOG Studios has helped other developers from our region, and from around the world for that matter, achieve a level of success that many teams aspire to, but often don’t reach,” says Nibris CEO Piotr Babieno.“Also the fact that they do not shield their clients from their customers, the publishers, as a way of maintaining their power base, but instead help to facilitate direct and lasting relationships between their clients and customers to create ongoing, self sustaining partnerships. This is the mark of a great partner, and we are proud to be working with them.”
FOG Chairman and CEO Ed Dille adds,“Although the games market always has been and likely always will be driven to a large degree by franchise titles, many publishers are realizing that they cannot simply recycle the classic franchises over and over indefinitely in new packaging, and are aggressively looking for titles that can become new franchises. At the same time, the public is crying out for less replication and more innovation in game play, which has been one of the driving factors behind the success of Nintendo’s Wii console recently. When we evaluated Nibris and their highly anticipated Wii title Sadness, we saw a level of creativity, passion and devotion to innovation that we have seen with past clients like Westwood Studios, when they were launching Command&Conquer, and we know those qualities will be rewarded in the marketplace.”
FOG and Nibris are currently showcasing their projects at the Game Convention in Leipzig. FOG will also be representing their clients at the upcoming Austin Game Developer’s Conference and the Tokyo Game Show.
