Pride of Nations and Rise of Prussia are back home

Grenoble, France, March 05, 2013 – After many weeks of discussions, Ageod ( www.ageod.com) is very pleased to announce that Pride of Nations and Rise of Prussia are coming home. From 1 st March Paradox Interactive have surrendered their commercial rights to sell any Ageod game including these two flagship titles.

As many may know, Ageod joined the Slitherine Group in January this year. Both Pride of Nations and Rise of Prussia were built on the AGEOD engine and were released during Ageod’s period of time with Paradox and since leaving Paradox and until joining the Slitherine Group their future has been uncertain.  “We now have to tell you that the future is bright!”, says Philippe Thibaut, Director of Ageod  “and to celebrate this move we can announce that we are working on a patch to upgrade both titles. This will only be available through our Group outlets”.

“Our Policy will be to continue to fully support our developers and their titles at realistic price points, in order that they can continue to bring to users quality turn based strategy games” says JD McNeil, C.E.O. of the Slitherine Group . “This involves the effort and work necessary to support, update and improve our group games as and when this is needed, even long after initial release.  So rest assured that we will continue to discuss and engage with our audience, on how and where to patch and add new features where possible”.

As a consequence of this deal, the Ageod forum will be the place to discuss these games and all aspects of future releases, updates and news.
