3DDUO puts its trust in Anuman Interactive for "Evolver" and "Shadomania"

Montreuil (France), March 6th, 2012. French softwares publisher Anuman Interactive has signed a deal to publish and distribute "Evolver" and "Shadomania", two games for casual players developed by 3DDUO, a developer based in Lille (in Northern France).

After working together on a remake of the game "Barbarian: The Death Sword", french publisher Anuman Interactive and development studio 3DDUO are joining forces again. 3DDUO has decided to entrust Anuman Interactive with the job of marketing two games its teams have developed in-house. They are "Evolver" and "Shadomania".

"Evolver" aimed at casual gamers, is an original Match 3 game where players have to reassemble animals and evolve them into different creatures – like the way wild life evolves. A different kind of puzzle game, "Shadomania", takes gamers into a Far Eastern world, half-way between Japanese woodblock prints and tangram puzzles.

“We’re very pleased to be publishing and marketing ‘Evolver’ and ‘Shadomania’ worldwide. These two titles will enable us strengthen and diversify our casual gaming portfolio, which is mostly made up of hidden object and time management games. We firmly believe they’ll find their slots in our catalogue.” affirms Alain Milly, Anuman Interactive’s Publishing Director.

Maxence Devoghelaere, who heads 3DDUO, adds: “We have every trust in Anuman Interactive’s know-how and ability to market ‘Evolver’ and ‘Shadomania’ to the general public across a full range of media. It’s a real opportunity for us to sit back and get a clear view of the future of our games licenses.”

Please note that the games will be available in the very near future on PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad in France and worldwide. On iOS, "Evolver" will be distributed solely by Big Fish Games.
