Hamburg, Germany – October 21st, 2015 – Canadian video game developer Hibernum and German premium publisher Deep Silver have signed an agreement to create and publish a new mobile game for iOS and Android. Hibernum will lead development of the yet-to-be-announced title, and Deep Silver’s Hamburg-based mobile unit Deep Silver FISHLABS will be in charge of the game’s publishing and marketing.
“Since the topic and setting of our new title will be based in North America, we have specifically kept our eyes open for a partner from the North American region,” said Christian Braun, Senior Producer at Deep Silver FISHLABS. “Thanks to their first-class portfolio and vast experience as a creator of mobile games, Hibernum has been on our radar for quite some time. We are happy that we have finally found an opportunity to work with them.”
The partnership with Hibernum marks the 6th collaboration with an external studio for Deep Silver FISHLABS in 2015. Earlier, contracts have already been concluded with Animation Arts (GER), ISBIT Games (SWE), Chimera Entertainment (GER) and OKAM Studio (ARG) as well as Tama Games / Mutant Games (both ESP).
“We look forward to expanding our publishing partner portfolio with the talented team at Deep Silver FISHLABS,” said Louis-René Auclair, Chief Brand Officer of Hibernum. “Their international publishing expertise makes them an ideal partner, insuring that Hibernum’s next mobile game creation reaches even more players from across the globe.”
Hibernum has worked with renowned publishers including Disney, Wooga, Ubisoft, Konami and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE). Their recent projects include Deus Ex Universe for Eidos Montreal. Currently, the Canadian studio is working on a smartphone and tablet adaptation combining the popular trading card game Magic: The Gathering with the Match-3 RPG series Puzzle Quest.
