Tripwire Interactive to publish Dwarfs!

It’s raining in Cologne, but good fortune is shining upon us as Tripwire Interactive – creator of games like Red Orchestra (http://www NULL.redorchestragame NULL.com/) and the very popular Killing Floor (http://www NULL.killingfloorthegame NULL.com/) – is going to be our publisher! After top-secret talks in a hidden bunker made of environment friendly ivory with diamond plating, we are now officially teaming up to bring Dwarfs to the masses!

When we were considering the possibility of looking for a publisher, we wanted one we knew had the experience and skill to do it well. After the discussions with Tripwire began, it quickly became obvious to us that they knew what they were doing. They had great ideas about effective marketing, and have established relationships with big players all over the world. We are absolutely confident that Tripwire Interactive is the perfect fit for us and our Dwarfs!

Nothing says love like 15 minutes spent in debug mode to bring you this masterpiece of electronic emotion!

Alan Wilson, Vice President of Tripwire Interactive:

“We met the team in Gotland in 2009 and loved what they were doing. Since then, Dwarfs has started stacking up awards and has now become a full-featured game, which is great fun and maddeningly addictive – which has been proven by how hard it is to get people here in the office to stop playing it and get back to work! ”

Here’s some info on Tripwire, in case you time travelled here recently and haven’t read up:

Based in Roswell, Georgia, 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 1,000,000 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.
