Rumble Entertainment, a leading developer of premium, multiplatform
free-to-play games, is kicking off its publishing business in
partnership with Aquiris Game Studio. Based in Brazil, Aquiris is
currently developing Ballistic, a free-to-play,
browser-based first-person shooter slated for release Spring 2013.
“Aquiris was looking for a publisher who shared our vision of delivering
premium gaming experiences in the browser,” said Mauricio Longoni, CEO,
Aquiris. “Rumble understands the changing nature of publishing in the
digital space and, as developers of top-tier web and mobile games
themselves, they are uniquely positioned to extend their platform to and
share knowledge with developers like Aquiris. Partnering with Rumble
allows us to deliver a new benchmark for browser-based shooters.”
In its role as a modern game publisher, Rumble provides
technology, tools, and know-how to the best developers of web and mobile
game experiences. The Rumble games-as-a-service publishing platform
includes scalable operations infrastructure, a rich suite of
game-feature and social APIs, telemetry and analytics, customer
support, and QA testing. Rumble's world-class design and art team
supports developers in creating appealing and profitable game services.
Additionally, Rumble leverages its marketing and player-acquisition
capabilities to build loyal and engaged game audiences.
“Ballistic represents the kind of high-quality browser
experience we believe will lead the industry in coming years,” Greg
Richardson, CEO, Rumble Entertainment, said. “Aquiris is a natural fit
for our publishing program, and we can’t wait to help them bring this
innovative shooter to gamers everywhere.”
Ballistic captures the frenetic action and competition of
team-based shooters while delivering stunning visuals that load
instantly on browsers and Facebook, with no download necessary. Players
choose from an array of modern-day weapons and skill perks to create
customized loadouts, then put their skills to the test in high-octane
shoot-outs. Prepare to go ballistic in Spring 2013.
