Get rich or Die Trying!

Paris, December 26th 2011,

Cyanide is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of "Cadwallon: City of Thieves" for iPad. Developed in collaboration with Elven Studio and Phuong Hoang Enix, it is a true mobile version of the original board game of the same name.

Cadwallon: City of Thieves is a strategy game designed by Laurent Pouchain and Pascal Bernard, based on the "Confrontation" IP. It is set in the free city of Cadwallon, which is home to a mixed bag of vagabonds, deserters, and outlaws. As a member of the guild of thieves, the player must loot the city to make a fortune, or die trying.

Cyanide's aim was to marry the possibilities of the iPad with the spirit of the original board game to bring a new vision to Cadwallon: City of Thieves. The resulting gameplay means that beginners can quickly understand the rules. Mobility and ease of use allows the player to take the game wherever he goes, sharing the experience (on the same iPad) with up to three other people.

This iPad version of the game will plunge the player, on a 3D voyage, deep into the sights and sounds of the city of Cadwallon.

Cadwallon: City of Thieves will soon be available on the AppStore.

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 75.

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 chord to its arc, 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.
