Founded by a group of Game Design students from the IT University of Copenhagen in 2011, Danish indie studio Logic Artists’ upcoming “Expeditions: Viking” game has now found a publishing partner in Polish IGM.PRO.
Expeditions: Viking, once released in 2016, will be Logic Artists‘ latest game in the “Expeditions”-series, which already includes the PC title Expeditions: Conquistador.
Very much like Expeditions: Conquistador, Viking will be a singleplayer turn-based RPG for Windows. But unlike previously, for Expeditions: Viking, Logic Artists have teamed up with Polish publisher IMGN.PRO in a rather large publishing deal.
The publishing deal includes IMGN.PRO heading physical distribution of the new title, as well as being in charge of the promotional aspects of the game, opening up the game to a large audience all around the world.
IMGN.PRO will be responsible for the retail distribution in most areas around the world, but will also bring the game to a number of digital platforms with whom the Logic Artists team does not currently have any partnership.
And according to co-owner of IMGN.PRO, Bartosz Moskala, the team at Logic Artists certainly has something going for them with the Expeditions series:
“Expeditions: Viking is a breath of fresh air in the RPG/Strategy genre and I’m truly glad we can partner up with its developer. The first installment of the expeditions brand was received very warmly among both players and critics. The sequel exploring the popular viking theme is therefore even more anticipated – the Danish studio surely has what it takes to do their ancestors justice”, he says.
Expeditions: Viking sees you take on the role of the new leader of a modest Norse village. But life in the Viking times wasn’t easy, so you have to consolidate your power as your neighbors plot against you, and cross the sea to explore the kingdoms of the British Isles where wealth and power await. Trader or Tyrant? You decide.
