Paradox Interactive Serves Up Restaurant Empire 2 in North America

NEW YORK - January 13th 2009 - Paradox Interactive has today announced that it has finalized a publishing agreement with Enlight Software to release Restaurant Empire 2 in North America. Restaurant Empire 2 builds on the highly popular Restaurant Empire franchise, a title that has already sold over 300,000 units in the United States alone.

With two handfuls of cash and a dream of creating a legacy, you will build, cook and hire your way to the very top of the culinary world, where tasty food is king and smart management reels in the dollars. If you’re skilled enough in the kitchen and behind the management desk, you just may go further than any aspiring restaurateur before you and cement your status as a true legend of cuisine.

“Enlight has done a tremendous job with the Restaurant Empire franchise. It offers everyone the opportunity to put their cooking and entrepreneurial skills to the test,” said Fredrik Wester, Executive VP of Paradox Interactive.“We are looking forward to working with them to bring the second instalment to North America.”

“Paradox has proven itself as the premier strategy-based PC publisher and we could not think of a more appropriate partner to take Restaurant Empire to the next level,” said Trevor Chan, CEO, Enlight Software.
