Atlanta, Ga– August 25, 2010— The Georgia Game Developers Association (GGDA) today announced Tripwire Interactive as a platinum sponsor for the fourth annual Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo (SIEGE). Scheduled for Oct. 1 - 3, 2010, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel - Atlanta Perimeter NW (Powers Ferry Rd), SIEGE brings together the leading Southern companies, universities and organizations in the game industry.
“We’ve been with SIEGE since the start and it is good to see how the show grows each year, reflecting the growth in the industry in Georgia and the South,” said Alan Wilson, vice president of Tripwire Interactive.“The show is good fun– we get in a good mix of business, learning and partying!”
Based in Roswell, Ga, Tripwire Interactive is an entertainment software developer and publisher founded in 2005 by the award-winning mod team and winners of the 2004 edition of the "$1,000,000 Make Something Unreal" competition. Released in early 2006, Tripwire Interactive's debut retail title Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 achieved both critical and commercial success garnering several awards including "Multiplayer Game of the Year" and "FPS of the Year" for 2006. Killing Floor, Tripwire's second title, jumped straight to the top of the Steam best-seller list and instantly became one of the top-ten most played FPS games in the world. With some of the most-played PC multiplayer games on the market and over 1 million units sold on PC, Tripwire Interactive have proven that with hard work, determination and great distribution partners, independent game developers can still make a big splash in the games industry. And if that wasn’t enough, in 2010, Tripwire published Zeno Clash, The Ball, and Dwarfs, bringing more independent developers’ products to the world.
