Cyanide announces Dungeonbowl ™  on PC.

PRESS RELEASE

Jim: "Ouch! That was a pillar Bob, he shouldn't have run that fast without looking in front of him, he's used to open fields!"

Bob: "That’s right Jim, and it was all captured on the new Dungeonbowl Cabalvision HD! With this blow, the colors on the dungeon walls will never be the same..."

Paris, April 10 th  2012.

Cyanide is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Dungeonbowl™. This online only game is played with characters from Games Workshop's® renowned Blood Bowl® world.

Dungeonbowl is the next exciting Blood Bowl experience, set in the fantasy American Football inspired game world already adapted as a video game by Cyanide. The key difference between Dungeonbowl and Blood Bowl as is rather obvious from the name, is that Dungeonbowl is played in a dangerous dungeon!

The wizards created the Dungeonbowl as they wanted to know which Magic College was the most powerful. The game introduces some subtle modifications to the standard Blood Bowl rules. A match is still played between two teams, but each side is composed of three races. For example, the roster of a Rainbow Wizards team contains Wood Elves, Halflings and Humans. The second difference is that the first team to score a touchdown wins the match. This task is made significantly more difficult by the fact that the ball is hidden in one of six treasure chests, five of which are booby-trapped with an explosive spell. Last, but by no means least, movement within the dungeon is both facilitated and complicated by teleporter pads. These allow players to magically zap from one position to another; a mishap, however, can lead to a player being zapped out of the match. As with Blood Bowl, the game is driven by dice and each player plays in turn.

Dungeonbowl continues Cyanide's successful collaboration with Games Workshop and their rich and varied Blood Bowl world. The gameplay should therefore delight existing Blood Bowl fans as well as offer a gateway to this zany parody of Warhammer® and American Football for fans of tactical sports gaming.

Dungeonbowl is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2012 and will be available on the Windows PC.

About Cyanide:

Cyanide is an independent and privately held video game studio. Based in Paris, it was created in 2000 and has risen to become one of the most productive game development studios in France. In 2007 the company opened a facility in Montreal, Canada and the headcount across both sites is currently 100.

The studio is best-known for its "Pro Cycling Manager" series of games (console and PC versions being released each year). However, it has more than one string to its bow, as games such as "Loki" (Action/RPG, 2007), "Blood Bowl" (sport/fantasy/RTS, 2009/2010) and "Dungeon Party" (F2P MMOG, 2009) have proved. These titles offer a rich pool of characters drawn from a wide variety of game universes.

In 2009, Cyanide secured the video game adaptation rights to George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. As a result, a tactical, strategy game was released for the PC in the 3rd quarter of 2011 and an RPG will be released on PC and next-gen consoles in the first half of 2012. Early 2012 will also see the release of the "Confrontation", a tactical RPG, based on an IP acquired by Cyanide in 2010, and “Of Orcs and Men”, another RPG, jointly developed with Spiders.
