Thunderful has acquired Rising Star Games.
If you missed it, Thunderful is Image & Form and Zoink joining forces. The Thunderful Group has now acquired Rising Star Games and both their offices in US and UK. Ed Valiente is the new Managing Director for Rising Star Games. Brjann Sigurgeirsson commented:
“Once he knew what we were planning, getting Ed hooked on the idea was easy. It’s the first time we recruit from outside Sweden, so it’s been a good exercise in dealing with Swedish red tape, housing and what have you. Having him on board is absolutely delightful.”
Rising Star Games have offices in the UK and the US and have published a variety of titles I’ve loved over the years like Virtue’s Last Reward and more recently Superbeat Xonic. This is a great match for Thunderful and for Rising Star Games.
