Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Kobalt Games
Kalypso has announced the first title to be distributed under their digital-first label Kasedo Games (formerly Kobalt Games), Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar. The upcoming strategy game from Longbow Digital Arts is a follow-up to Hegemony: Philip of Macedon, and will feature four campaigns modeled after Caesar’s famous campaign using his own commentary, Commentarii de Bello Gallico. There will be over 100 objectives for players to tackle throughout Gaul, Germania, and Britannia. A sandbox mode will be included as well, with over 20 playable factions. In addition to Philip of Macedon’s emphasis on maintaining efficient supply lines, Rome will add the ability to construct bridges and forts as well as appoint experienced officers as governors.
Developer and publisher Kalypso Media has created a new digital-centric label, Kobalt Games. According to the announcement, “Kobalt Games will publish high-quality titles for PC, XBLA, PSN, Mac and Linux at a mid-price level, with a maximum price of £24.99, €29.99, $29.99, primarily via digital distribution channels.” Kobalt announced that its first game will be Blood Knights, a hack-n-slash action-RPG from Venetica and Jack Keane developer Deck 13 Interactive. Set in the Middle Ages, players will control two adventurers, a Templar vampire hunter and the vampire he is bound to, who must battle against armies of creatures to find the spell that will break their bond.
