Paradox Interactive Convention 2012: New Titles Announced!

STOCKHOLM – January 24, 2012 – Paradox Interactive successfully wrapped up its annual two day convention last week, this year held in their beautiful and brisk hometown of Stockolm, Sweden, with the Swedish publisher and developer showcasing a slew of titles slated for release in 2012, as well as unveiling three previously unannounced projects.

Taking place inside Häringe Palace, Sweden’s most haunted castle, the independent publisher demonstrated that it’s not afraid of any ghosts, or embracing change, as it plans to release more titles outside of the strategy genre. Citing 75% growth in 2011 over 2010, Paradox Interactive is gearing up for yet another successful year.
